The Lord God came to Abraham and said, "Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield". It is true for those of us who believe in the possibility of God being our shield. God being our strength and courage, God actually becomes that. Then psychologists will say, it is how your mind works and nothing to do with God. May be true. But the fact is to the one who believe in God and wants God to be part of their everyday life and its problems, it truly turns out to be that way. God becomes a reality to the one who believes it and God becomes the shield to the one who is willing to make God the protection.
