Every word of God is tried: He is a shield unto them that take refuge in him.
First there is the word tried –tested and proved good, dependable, or trustworthy.
Wow - every word has been tested and proved good, dependable and trustworthy! What a comfort that should be for us. And then to read on, He is a shield - a person or thing that protects. Well we know God is much more than a person or a thing. There were so many definitions of shield but they all lead to one thing, it protects. And next refuge - a place of shelter, protection, or safety. This is great news for us, we are to be encouraged! When we need someplace to go from the storms that are closing in around us, we are to run to God and His Word. He is what protects us from the storm, He will stand beside us and guide us. So again I say be encouraged, it is proven that God is that best place to go and stay with in times where we don't feel like there is anyplace to go.
