Psa 7:10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. (KJV)
Psa 7:10 God, who is the saviour of the upright in heart, is my breastplate. (Basic English Bible)
Psa 7:10 You, God, are my shield, the protector of everyone whose heart is right. (CEV)
God protects those whose heart is right. He is a defense or shield to those who belong to Him.
If we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, God surrounds us with His protection. Only eternity will reveal just what messes and tragedies God has saved us from, whether because of our relationship to Him, or because of the prayers of someone else in our behalf. The Bible reveals much about what goes on behind the scenes. We are engaged in spiritual warfare. Staying close to God by prayer, reading God’s Word the Bible, and by our obedience to what we know is His will mark the person who is upright in heart. Make sure you are upright in heart so that you receive the benefit of God’s best for you.
