Psalm 115: 9 – 11 O Israel, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield. O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield. You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.
The promises of help and being a shield are given to three groups of people; Israel, Aaronic priesthood and whoever fears the Lord – that includes you and me.
The promise of being a “help” literally means the Lord Himself will encircle around us and being a “shield” includes becoming a hedge around us. Both promises are based on the condition of reverential fear of Almighty God.
Our fear for Him, not of Him, provides protection!
