Psa. 3:1 LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
Psa. 3:2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God.
Psa. 3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
Welcome To The Light-Washed Path,
“Many” are the occasions of stress and sorrow throughout life. There are certainly more days of trial than there are days of happiness. David said:
Psa. 3:1 LORD, how are they increased that trouble me…..many are they that rise up against me.
And David was a man who walked with God and pleased the Lord. But none of his good deeds, or acts of heroism, or zeal for the Lord, or obedience to God, seemed to shelter him from troubles. They surrounded him as Satan taunted him through his trials. But then the devil lied and went too far. He told David:
Psa. 3:2 …..There is no help for him in God.
It was true, that there may not have been any friends for David among those who were making his life hard. And there may not have been any mercy or relief for him in the circumstances that surrounded him. But one thing was definitely a lie: THERE WAS HELP FOR HIM IN GOD!
Psa. 3:3 But THOU, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
“But THOU, O Lord” – Your Heavenly Father is the one thing in your life that is never affected by your circumstances. Satan will camouflage himself with your natural circumstances. He will hide himself in even the smallest annoyances of life and wait to exploit them against you. He will patiently arrange obstacles against you, until he can jump up in your face at the moment when you are overwhelmed and tell you that even God can’t help you. But then he’s gone too far!
No matter what beats you down, if you will look with all your heart to the Lord through praise and acknowledgement of His goodness, then He will LIFT YOUR HEAD. No matter how life busts or spends you, it can never rob your “help in God”. So always remember, when the devil speaks from behind the obstacles of your trials, and tells you, “There is no help for him in God”, he KNOWS it’s a lie!! Just lift your voice and praise the Lord. Sing songs of deliverance, and watch your God lift your head!
Psa. 27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
Stay On The Path!
