Christ is My Shield.

i read this last week.  and i can't stop thinking about this idea that the Lord is my shield.  by 'can't get over it' i think about it multiple times a day & try to understand it and can't fathom or understand the infinite power of the Lord.  

Psalm 5:11-12 says, 
'But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;

    let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,   
 that those who love your name may exult in you.

12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;    
you cover him with favor as with a shield.'

so then i started thinking about what shield means by definition:

definition of shield {via}
1. a broad piece of armor, varying widely in form and size,carried apart from the body, usually     on the left arm, as adefense against swords, lances, arrows, etc.
a similar device, often of lightweight plastic, used by riotpolice to protect themselves from rocks and other thrownobjects.
something shaped like a shield, variously round, octagonal,triangular, or somewhat heart-shaped.
a person or thing that protects.

i've found several other scriptures that lead me to this same point: the Lord is my shield.

Genesis 15:1, deuteronomy 33:29, 2 samuel 22:3, 2 samuel 22:31, psalm 3:3, psalm 7:10, psalm 18:2, psalm 18:30, psalm 18:35, psalm 28:7, 33:20, 47:9, 59:11, 84:9, 84:11, 89:18, 115:9, .... and it goes on and on. 

it overwhelms me that He is protecting me, even when i can't/may never see it.  thank you Lord.  

what characteristic about Christ is overwhelming you today?  just curious.  
can't believe i'm covered by The Shield,
