But you O Lord are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. Psalm 3:3
I was late to the Star Trek fold. The originals with William Shatner seemed a little hokey to me, and some of the other series were just not my cup of tea. Then the reboots of the movies came out and I loved them. They were so good that I went to the beginning and started watching them all. I went back to the very first Star Trek episode and sat down and committed to catching up on all of the seasons, from all of the series, so that I could have the full Star Trek experience. So yes, I guess I would now be considered a Trecker.
No matter which series I am watching I have a favorite part. It is when the captain of the ships yells, “Shields Up!” Whenever the captain gives the order for the shields to go up, that means that something is about to go down. No matter if it means that the Romulans are attacking or if they are about to attack the Borg, shields up is the command that lets you know that everyone onboard needs to get ready for some action. The shields go up so that if they are hit by something it may bounce them around but whatever is thrown at them will not bring them down.
Friends, like the ships of Star Trek we have shields in life too. When the enemy attacks the Lord becomes the shield around us. The Lord is our keeper when we go into battle when we find ourselves under attack, and just as we go through our day to day life. God loves you so much that he surrounds us with protection so that the enemy can’t destroy us. The enemy will attack us. The enemy will take his shots but always remember when you get in trouble you have shields up and you will make it through.
