But thou, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the lifter up of mine head. (Psalm 3:3)
As believers there are many enemies we have to face every day, we are in a war with an
enemy that seeks to destroy us on every side. He uses many weapons against us. They are like fiery darts sent to destroy us.
Oftentimes the attacks we face are to bring us down in the sight of others. we know how to handle the physical abuse, but it is the attack on our character, the words and attitudes of others towards us that can sometimes make us feel impotent against the attacks on our spiritual lives.When this happens we walk round slouched over we seem incapable of holding our heads up, instead we feel ashamed, beaten down, downtrodden.
But the Lord give us a promise. Glory to God, He says that He will shield us from such, he will protect us from the fiery darts of the enemy. He will cause us to receive glory and honour in Him.He will cause us to lift up our heads boldly to face the world. Because there is no condemnation in Him, only praise and glory.
So if you feel beaten down today, know that He is your shield, the glory and the lifter of your head.
Thank Him for lifting you up.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
