Psalm 8:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

This is a piece of a scripture that I hear often. I can’t help but to focus on the words “beast of the field”
I have gone over and over this scripture I’ve even prayed and asked for wisdom. I understand that the term beast has a strong reference, yet I think about life itself. I feel as though I have encountered this beast so many times in my life, but I’ve been granted grace as God covers me with his shield.
The obstacles that we face on a day to day, and right now for these few seconds I Know that the certain identify of it doesn’t matter it’s how you war the battle. If you recall for years I ran because I had an inner fear of snakes in particular a huge yellow snake that was reoccurring. In fact one day a physical yellow snake which was huge in size was brought to my job.
Once I stopped running my fear went away, and I no longer allowed the beast to attack me like that. So here I am pondering on this pharse, and I realize that for myself this beast could be a number of things. Including the adversary who tries endlessly to throw me off course of life itself. No matter how many hurdles I jump I’m looking up to find dozens more.
The term beast has a very strong definition behind it, and I believe it to be of grave importance for us to monitor ourselves and relationship with God least this beast becomes a part of us. No matter what God has given us authority over the beast of the field. It is up to us to choose to exercise that authority.
I’ve learned that with God on my side I am never alone. So as loud as this beast roars I stand tall and firm because God is greater than any problem I might every have.
