Episode 260


1 After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward. ”

Genesis 15:1


When the Lord speaks, He speaks, and when He speaks over us, He speaks over us. The promise He gave Abraham is a promise we can hold for ourselves. He is a shield for his people; He is our reward.


I am in the middle of rewatching the MCU movies, and last week I watched Capitan America Civil War. He picked up his vibration steel shield, and anything that came his way was blocked by that shield.


I like to imagine God is that very shield for us. Anything the enemy throws our way is blocked by His grace. But how many of us know Captain America’s shield doesn’t work unless he picked it up and uses it. In the same way, we must use Him. We have to use the word of God; we have to use prayer; we have to pick up His promises and use them to shield us from the enemy.


Father God, thank you. Thank you for being our protector and our reward. Thank you for being our shield. We know that you will always protect us, but we also understand the importance of leaning you for help. We will use the word; we will use prayer; we will use all you give us to shield us from attacks from the enemy. We ask that you bless the day and the weekend ahead of us. AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
