In Psalm 91:4, the poet describes the protection of God “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your SHIELD and rampart.” The truth of the promise contained in this verse was dramatically illustrated to me when God became a shield on behalf of my son, who was involved in the invasion of Iraq in March of 2003. At “Ambush Alley” near An Nasiriyah his unit came under small arms fire and rocket propelled grenades. Two amtracks were destroyed and the amtrack my son was driving would have been destroyed but for the grace of God. Just moments before the enemy directed an RPG at my son’s amtrack, one of his fellow marines “accidentally” shot down a telephone pole. That fallen telephone pole became a shield which deflected the incoming RPG. During this battle other RPGs either completely missed or did not explode. God was true to his word and true to his promise as spoken in Psalm 91:4. He provided my son with a shield just in time. And on top of that (as a matter of helping him and me remember the source of our blessing) he custom designed this shield to be in the shape of the cross on which his son died for our sins.
