From:

Psalm 3:1-3 (TLB)

Text:

1O Lord, so many are against me. So many seek to harm me. I have so many enemies. So many say that God will never help me. But Lord, you are my shield, my glory, and my only hope. You alone can lift my head, now bowed in shame.
OBSERVATION:
In these verses we see where David was just like us, for he felt like the world was against him and making fun of he and the God that he served and depended on. However, in verse 3 David brushed aside everything that he was feeling depressed about, and instead gave glory to the God who had stayed by his side through many battles and numerous personal defeats. The God who lifted him up and helped him to see the brighter side of things.
APPLICATION:
I would dare say that there are more of us just like David, than we would care to admit! For there are times that we may feel like even our friends are making fun of us and our beliefs. There are times that we tend to feel like friends are even thinking that we waste so much of our time seeking after God. However, I am here to encourage us today! For like David, we must be willing and always ready to say that no matter what our circumstances are, and no matter who we feel might be against us, or trying to discourage us, our God is still God! He is still worthy of our praise! He is even more so a shield to protect us from the evil one and every evil dart that Satan sends our way. I believe that He desires to see our heads lifted up and praising Him, than to see ours heads bowed in shame and defeat. Friends, for those of us who have surrendered our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ, we have every reason to keep looking up, keep praising and keep serving our victorious and risen Lord! Remember, we are children of the King of all kings and Lord of all lords, who loved us enough to die sacrificially on the cross at Calvary to save even an undeserved wretch like you and me. We are royalty – wonderfully made and truly blessed by God, who loves us unconditionally. Let’s learn to praise Him in all circumstances of life – He’s Got This!!
PRAYER:
Lord, You are good, and Your mercies endures forever and forever! You have proven Your love for us in so many ways, including providing a home for us when we pass from this world to the next. Yes, while living among sinful people here on earth, we will encounter discouragement, but Lord, may I ask You humbly today that You might bless us with the encouragement that David found – that in all things we might lift our heads high and proclaim the praises of our wonderful Lord! Please lift us higher and higher each day, so that we might be reminded of the wonders of our King and find encouragement even through the toughest times here on earth. We love You Lord. Please help us to never leave room to question that by our actions when tough times come to us. We’re Yours Lord, may we show whose we are in every circumstance of life, AMEN!
