Psalm 3 – My Shield

Psalm 3:1-4

1 O Lord, how many are my foes!
    Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
    “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
    my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah

I am so thankful for the Psalms!  David had a way with words – describing how we all can feel at times.

Sometimes it just feels like the enemies are surrounding us.  In can feel like a never ending battle.  But we need to remember this promise – God IS with us!  He is our Shield! He is our glory!  He is the lifter of our head!  ….  What does some of this mean?  Well one thing I know for sure – He will protect us!  He is there to guide us! He LOVES us!

I love the 4th verse – “I cried to the Lord, and He answered me”.  God IS faithful!  He will answer us!
