Our Great Defender 
"But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him with a shield."
Psalm 5:11-12

Someone has said, "The best offense is a great defense."  As believers we are assured that God is our Defender.  There is no circumstance, crisis or challenge too difficult for Him. 

We are not alone, for He is with us. We are not afraid, for He is for us. We are not defenseless, for He fortifies us.  We are not "going under" for in Jesus we are going over!

"The Lord watches over those who fear Him, those who rely on His unfailing love.  We depend on the Lord alone to save us.  Only He can help us, protecting us like a shield."
Psalm 33:18, 20

My heart wells up with rejoicing when I recall the truth expressed in that old song made familiar by the late Ethel Waters, "His Eye Is On the Sparrow"...which says: 

"I sing because I'm happy; I sing because I'm free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and know He watches me!"

He is our Great Defender!
