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.”
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.
Psalm 3:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)
Unless our heads are bowed in prayer, we should lift them in confidence. God, the Lifter of our heads, is our shield. He is glorified when we display our trust in His ability to keep us lifted above the trouble of this world. Heads bent down low in anxiety and despair cannot see those who need to know the awesome God we serve and the reason for our hope.
We all have bad days but we who believe what Jesus Christ did to save us can trust in the promises He has given for our futures. No matter what, let us hold our heads up high and glorify our God who is, was and is to come. Rejoice in the Lord always!
Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Psalm 24:7-8 NIV
