When I arrived at work yesterday morning, the fog was thick. As I was parking the car, I could see the sun through the blanket of mist that was suspended above the trees. When I consider the sun, I think of light–powerful light. When thinking of a shield, thoughts of covering and protection come to mind. The sun is a life sustaining force. Without it, we could not exist. In the spiritual battles of our lives, we are not left unguarded. It is the power of God that grants us life, and it is His shield that surrounds us, keeping watch over our very souls.
