Psalm 3:3

When Your Head is Hangin’ Low, Try This

07/11/2019

Have you ever had your head “hangin” low? Perhaps you were depressed. It seemed everybody or everything was against you. Or, maybe your head was “hangin” low in shame. Or maybe you’re at a crossroad and don’t know what to do.  The acclaimed King David knew what it was like to have his head hanging low. He penned these words, “You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who LIFTS MY HEAD.” (Psalm 3:3) His head had been down, but he knew on whom to focus – the Lord. If your head is hanging low today, remember this comforting truth – God sees you and cares about you. Whatever you’re facing, He can LIFT YOUR HEAD, just as He did David’s. How? For an example, do the following. 1) Turn to Psalm 3:3.  and read it. It’s only 8 verses. Read Psalm 1, only 6 verses. 2) Write in your journal a verse that is meaningful to and one that is instructive. Personalize them. For instance, I wrote in my journal, Prayers of My Heart, “7/9/19 Psalm 1:1a, 2-3b. How blessed is the woman whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law she meditates day and night.” What happens when we follow our Father’s instruction and lift our head and eyes to His glorious Word? We find hope, peace, grace, glory. If your head is “hangin” low, lift it to God’s Word.

Thank You, Heavenly Father, for giving us Your Word that lifts our head to heaven. We love and praise You.

If You’re Under Attack

10/18/2018

LISTEN

Do you feel under fire by a barrage of personal, financial, physical, spiritual, or other attacks? If so, take courage. Look up to your Heavenly Father, who David describes in Psalm 3:3 as a SHIELD about him.  Put on the spiritual armor He’s given you.  (Ephesians 6:13) Take His Word and bathe your heart and mind in it. (Psalm 119:97-98, 110-111, 114)  Jesus hasn’t left us alone to suffer through life’s trials by ourselves. Cover yourself with His love and truth. (from Pray with Purpose, Live with Passion)

Lord, thank You for being a SHIELD about us. Help us stay under the protection of Your divine armor and Word.

“You, O Lord, are a SHIELD about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.” Psalm 3:3

Praise to the LIFTER OF MY HEAD

07/03/2018

“You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who LIFTS MY HEAD.”

Psalm 3:3

Have you ever had your head “hangin” low? Perhaps you were ashamed. Or, maybe you were just down. Imagine this comforting reality – God sees you and cares how you’re doing. He is the one who LIFTS YOUR HEAD in your most “down” times. What happens when He lifts our heads? Our eyes turn from looking down to looking up – to looking at His glorious face where we find hope and peace. If you’re down today, take a moment to look up  in prayer to your Heavenly Father. Let Him lift your eyes to the hope and glory that is in Him.

We praise you, God, the LIFTER OF OUR HEAD!

LIFTER OF MY HEAD

03/25/2013

“You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.”

Psalm 3:3

Have you ever had your head “hangin” low? Perhaps you were ashamed. Or, maybe you were just down. Imagine…God sees you and cares how you’re doing. He wants to lift your head. What happens when He does? Our eyes turn from looking down to looking up – into His face and glory. If you’re down and out today, pause. Take a moment to look to God in prayer. Let Him lift your eyes to the hope and glory you have in Him. 

I praise you, God, the LIFTER OF MY HEAD!
