Psalms 3

Psalms 3:1-8 (NKJV)

1 A Psalm of David When He Fled from Absalom His Son. LORD, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.

2 Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.” Selah

3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

4 I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.

7 Arise, O LORD; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8 Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah

There are inevitable times when it seems the numbers are stacked against, when the perception is that there is no one to support or sustain. How easy it is to get overwhelmed with times of real and imagined resistance that is seemingly formidable. No matter how great the resistance, however, there is a reality that, if acknowledged, will ease all anxiety and entertain confidence and boldness. The reality is that there are far more that are with us than those against us, and greater is the One who resides on the inside than any foe that could threaten. In this realization is reason for great renewal of hope and encouragement. While this is a reality, however, it is yet in need of verbal affirmation, the declaration that establishes it above the illusions of enemy domination. Declaring the triumph of Christ in crushing enemies beneath His feet allows this victory to effectively lift the head from a hanging despair. The perception of being under is completely reversed by calling on the Lord and declaring the praises of His great, overwhelming demonstrations of power.
