Many are they who trouble me…
Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help for him in God.” Selah
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Psalm 3:1-4
As we look out on the horizon, just as it was in King David’s time of trouble, our enemies are many. They mock and say “there is no help coming from your God, if He exists He does not care”. And we have wandered far, away from You God, choosing our own way, we are guilty of worshiping other gods.
But Your promises are true and in spite of what our enemies may say, when we cry out to You, You will hear and answer. You are our shield and the One who will lift us up out of our shame, forgive us of our sins and deliver us from our enemies.
Thank you O God!
