Psalms 91:2 
...You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.

2Thessalonians 3:3 
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.

Psalms 59:9-10
God, my strength, I am looking to you,
because God is my defender.
My God loves me, and he goes in front of me.
He will help me defeat my enemies.

Lately, Jesus keeps reminding me that He is my defender.
Have you ever been in a situation where you don't think the other person really see's your heart?  Maybe there was a misunderstanding and you really want to defend yourself.  Maybe the other person thinks you made the wrong choice.  Maybe someone really hurt you.  It is easy to try and defend yourself, but do you know what works a lot better?  Allowing the Lord to be your defender!
He is the peacemaker!  He will show that person your heart, He will make sure they know the truth.  He will defend you much better than you can ever defend yourself!  
Synonyms for the word defender are: protector, guardian, advocate, supporter, promoter, believer!  
WOW! What an awesome God we serve, a God who will be our defender if we allow Him to.  He will support us, HE will PROMOTE us!  He is our guardian and advocate!  You do not have to defend yourself, trust that your Heavenly Father is doing it for you (and He is doing an EXCELLENT job). 
Instead of defending yourself you can choose to forgive and walk in love.  We can love unconditionally because He loves us unconditionally!
