  • MockingBird for verse 5
    My Lord is faithful to keep me. I have nothing to fear. My Lord God is my shade on my right hand. He covers me with His hand . The right hand from what I have been taught is spiritual Blessings : My left hand is material and financial Blessings. God : I believe has a specific order of things He talks about in His word. God never ceases to amaze me at the Greatness of Himself and His Word. I am so Grateful and Thankful He is my Lord and Savior.
  • Roxanna for verse 5
    The Lord is the only one of significance since He is my protector. If he doesn 't watch over me, I am doomed for failure and defeat. Since he keeps me, then he prevents any and everything from harming me. The plots set up by the enemy will not penetrate the shelter he has over me. Even though I can sense the dangers around, I can truly say that I am in a safe place because he has become the shade upon my right hand. No harm can penetrate that covering over my life.
