Psalm 91:4, "His truth shall be your shield and buckler."
I like signature license plates. In fact, I have one of my very own. I was willing to spend $100 for a license plate that no one else has in my home state. It’s affixed right now to my powder blue 1978 Ford Pinto. MyPinto, it reads. My first choice for the plate was MyPony, but a Mustang owner already had it.
I’m starting to wonder if the Lord has a liking for personalized license plates as well. How else can you explain the following two instances that happened to us?
Last spring, as we were preparing for a much-anticipated trip to the Grand Canyon, we met for prayer with a prayer partner. As we prayed about the Arizona trip our friend said she felt that Psalm 91 was for us as we traveled to the Southwest.
We eagerly read the beautiful psalm about abiding in God’s presence several times before our departure, and even once or twice after we had arrived in Arizona. But just imagine our absolute thrill and delight while waiting in our car at the front entrance to the Grand Canyon, paying the entrance fee, asking the Ranger questions, when our eyes caught the license plate on the car directly in front of us. "Psalm 91" The vehicle drove off before I could grab my camera.
The second instance happened as we were driving across town to meet some family members for a meal. Before we left home we had agreed to use the 30 or so minutes of drive time praying. Well, as the flesh would have it, we didn’t get around to praying. Instead, we chatted and listened to the radio.
Later that day as we were returning home we hit a traffic jam. “Well, it’s a good time to pray, I guess,” I said to my husband. “Yes, pray now,” he responded in a rather strange tone of voice. And then he directed me to look at the license plate on the car in the lane next to us.
You guessed it.

Very cute. Sandra. Here's one that belongs to a church member: GOTJZUS. And mine reads: MSTG JNI, which is, of course, on my Mustang. I also love to read license plates. This is cute and bodes the question, "what would God's license plate say?" I think it would simply read I AM.
