  • What is the meaning of Psalm 84:11 ?

    Psalm 84 NIV

    11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
    no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

    This is written to those whose walk is blameless. There is ONE and ONLY ONE way to be blameless in the eyes of the Lord. That is to trust in Him alone to save you.

    John 14:6 NIV

    6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    1 John 1 NIV

    8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

    Colossians 1 TLB - 20 It was through what his Son did that God cleared a path for everything to come to him—all things in heaven and on earth—for Christ’s death on the cross has made peace with God for all by his blood. 21 This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies and hated him and were separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now he has brought you back as his friends. 22 He has done this through the death on the cross of his own human body, and now as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are standing there before him with nothing left against you—nothing left that he could even chide you for; 23the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Jesus died for you, and never shifting from trusting him to save you. This is the wonderful news that came to each of you and is now spreading all over the world. And I, Paul, have the joy of telling it to others.

    So if we confess our sin to Him and then trust in His blood alone to save us we are blameless in His sight.

    To those who trust in Him alone to save them, Jesus is a sun to them. That is He gives them light to see and warmth to them. The Lord is a shield to them, or He protects them from any real harm:

    Romans 8 TLB

    28 And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.

    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
    no good thing does he withhold

    From those who trust in Him alone to save them.
