Psalm 3:4-5 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.
(4) I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill.
The phrase but You, O Lord changes the mood of this psalm from dejection to confidence.
There are three things that David says:
1. When no one would help David, God was his shield.
2. When David had nothing to treasure, God was his glory.
3. When no one would encourage him, God Himself would encourage him and lift his head.
Holy hill is a poetic reference to God’s dwelling in heaven; The place of Israel’s worship was but a physical symbol of this dwelling.
Brothers and sisters we must be as David. We must know and understand the Lord is the One who answers our cries. In the midst of our chaos and fear, we must cry out to the Lord. We must remain confident in the Lord’s presence and that God has heard our prayers.
When our lives are chaotic and fear surrounds us, where do we turn? The Lord wants us to cry out to Him. He is our shield and protection. He is able to rescue us. The Lord is “a very present help in trouble.”
Psalm 37:7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Accept Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, today. Today is the day of salvation. Now is the accepted time. You may not really have tomorrow. Have a Blessed Day.
