I am your shield who protects you. I am the one who lifts your head. When you cry out, I hear you. In fact, I’m the one who gives you strength to call to me. I sustain you, so look to me for delivery. When you are threatened by an enemy or pushed around, turn to me. I will fight your battles. I will give you victory. Turn your head from your enemy and turn your heart from doubt. I will go before you and will protect you.
