Don't try to live without your shield

the Lord is your shieldDon’t do anything to jeopardize the protection your shield offers. Live within the slipstream of your shield.
As a child I would ride behind my father on his motorbike. I loved it and occasionally I would try and push my head out to feel the wind on my face. My father would always tell me to pull my head in. While I sat behind him I was secure and protected from the head wind and any flying object in the air. It was only years later when I got my own motorbike that I discovered that without my father as a shield I had to be careful that things did not fly into my face or eyes.
When we live within the slipstream of the shield we can enjoy the protection He offers. When we decide to move out from that protection either through sin or just doing what we want to do, we expose ourselves to many forms of onslaughts, most of which have the power to destroy us.  So live within the slipstream of Your Shield and remain there.

John 15:7 ‘If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.’
