For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11
I have the assurance that God delights in His children and always desires to make good things happen for them. Sometimes there may be delays, there can be unforeseen circumstances in our ways and it looks like God has forgotten us. Whatever the issue is, God is always interested in doing good things for us and he will always ensure those good things happen.
When you read Isaiah 45 verse 2, God said, I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. That is another proof of God being interested in doing good things for us.
He said he will go before us. That means he will lead us in all that we do. The beauty of that is the fact that the leader is the one who takes responsibility for any obstacle on the way. So he said he will make the crooked places straight before us. When he has done that, all we need to do is to keep moving.
In fact, I think that if you are experiencing some delays right now, it can be because God is ahead of you and making the crooked places straight. He will not want you to run into those crooked places.
When we take a second look at the text above, the Bible mentions a few significant things in the scriptures. It says the Lord God is a sun and shield. Two quick things that will come to mind is that the sun shines and the shield protects. The second part of that verse says The Lord will give grace and glory
The sun The Lord shining over us is connected to glory being given to us while the shield is connected to grace being given to us. Not everyone is protected but we, his own children, are protected and that is because of the grace that we have received from him.
It is also obvious that there are so many other good things that God has in stock for us which cannot be immediately exhausted in a list so the verse ends by saying, No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.
When the Bible says no good thing I can assure you that it covers all the good things you can ever imagine or desire in your own life.
Those good things include the desired promotion in your place of work which has been delayed or your prayer to get a job in the first place. Getting a spouse that will not become a burden to you is a part of those good things. Breaking free from whatever has held you bound for a while is part of the good things that the Lord will not withhold from you.
You may be asking when the Lord God will come through for you in your situation. I believe it is not too far from now and more importantly is the fact that it is in His word to not withhold good things from you.
I pray that all the good things you desire, especially as you trust the Lord for them will begin to manifest in your life in Jesus mighty name.
