Numbers 6:24   Thought/Prayer

: Tooth, Nail and Jaw.  Topics:  2 at end.

“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: . . . “

King David and his brothers would keep the sheep.  Out in the pastures they would even do battle to “keep” the sheep, keep them safe. 

When David was volunteering to take on the giant man Goliath, he was discouraged by King Saul because of his youth.  However, (I Samuel 17:34): “But David persisted. ‘I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,’ he said. ‘When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, 35 I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death. 36 I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! 37 The Lord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!’”

Our God will keep us, too, when we do battle:  same God.  When odds rail against us as lions and bears, we must remember our keeper.  The keeper is the key to any flock of sheep.  In the LIFE-battle, our little lambs are the little folks in the warm wombs of their mothers.  We act as their shepherds ready to fight tooth, nail and jaw, going against the ferocious beasts of apathy, ignorance and worldliness to name a few. 

Pray today that in the face of discouragement at the forces against us, that we will remind ourselves that we are shepherds of the innocent—and that the LORD is our shepherd to keep us.

Topics:  Pray for confidence to rise among pro-lifers as we ponder that we are protected by our great God who fights for us, even in advance of the battle.
Pray for our nation, that it will become a strongly Christian nation once again.
