This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me. Psalm 119:50
Chaps are leather coverings for the legs of the cowboy. They’re usually made out of sturdy leather and made to protect the legs. It’s important they’re sturdy leather because of the shrubs and vegetation that tear at the cowboy’s legs. Like chaps, God gives us wonderful protection by providing His Word for us as His children.
When the world starts tearing at us and reaching out to grab us with all it has to offer, we can be refreshed and cling to the Word of God and find peace and comfort there. We can take comfort knowing God provides protection that covers us in this world.
