Let God’s People Trust Him as Their Help and Shield
In response to the warning in verse 8 this section calls all the members of God’s family to trust the Lord . The Lord alone is qualified to be our help and our shield.
Psalm 115:9-11 (ESV)
9 O Israel, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield. 10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield. 11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield.
“The fear of the Lord” what does this mean? Does it mean if we cross God, if we disobey Him he will smash us like a bug? He will really do us harm because we sinned or failed Him?
No! The fear of the Lord is to hold God in the highest reverence as the Most Holy. To be revered, worship, honored and praised continually. What does verse 1 say,” but your name give glory for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness.”
