A TIME OF NEED!
“But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.” Psalm 3:3
HOPE FOR TODAY!
King David was on the run when he prayed this, running from Absalom his own son! See here, even Absalom, David’s own son sought to kill him, but David knew that no matter what the circumstance was he could trust God to save him in his time of need. Do you know that God is with you at all times, and even in your time of need? God will protect you. He will be your shield and the lifter of your head. With Jesus comes joy! And His joy lifts us up and enables us to overcome difficult situations such as this. It is the joy of God that gives us strength and delivers us in our times of need, as we read,
“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.” Psalm 91:14
“Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither ne ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
Why is God our Savior, our deliver, our healer, and more?
Jesus has His reasons, yet Jesus does not make this complicated, he simply looks at our heart for His answer to why!
BECAUSE YOU HAVE SET YOUR LOVE UPON HIM!
BECAUSE YOUR JOY IN LIFE IS JESUS!
