“The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand” (Psalm 121:5).
While the term “blindside” is most currently associated with football and the need to have a large, athletic left tackle to offer protection behind a right handed quarterback, it also captures the watch-care of our Heavenly Father in shielding even the most vulnerable areas of our life. That the Lord is our shade is a metaphor for his protection. In ancient battle the right side was more vulnerable since the shield was held in the left hand. Whether left or right-handed, and no matter what your battle, the Lord has your back.
