The very one against whom I have sinned, stands ready to defend me because of His ever present mercy toward those who have accepted the finished work of His son. “But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.” Psalm 59:16-17
When I am unable to defend myself, He is my defender. When I call out to Him in distress, He is there to defend me. “Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.” Psalm 31:2
In the quiet hours of the night when sleep evades me, in moments during which the devil brings thoughts of doubt or reminders of guilt; during those times I need only wait, knowing that God is my rock, my salvation, my defence. I possess nothing within myself, my defence rests within my God; so nothing the devil can throw at me need trouble or disturb me, for God is my defence.
“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.” Psalm 62:5-8
I have the best attorney of all time fighting to defend me, for my defence is of God. “My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.” Psalm 7:10 My defence is built upon the work of Calvary, where Jesus paid it all for me.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” Philippians 2:10
