"But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head." Psalm 3:3
He protects us, shields us, surrounds us.
He bestows glory on us. We don't gain it for ourselves.
When we are down, He lifts our heads, helping us refocus on what's necessary, what's important. He doesn't let us navel gaze... instead He redirects our sights on serving, giving, loving others. I love the picture of Him cupping our chins and lifting our heads.
This spoke to me today.
Perhaps it will speak to one of you, right where you're at. That's what the Psalms do for me.
