Psalm 3:3 NIV “But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.”
Too often, I see people with their heads hanging low, bowed down by the burdens they are carrying. Some of them may have no one to talk to, while others show no hope in their eyes. They are desperately looking for answers. Many more have resigned themselves to the challenges they are battling with. What about you? Is your head bowed down today because of a burden you are carrying? Are you desperate for God to come through? When we are downcast or gazing downwards, our eyes are fixed only on a small area of the floor around us. What we see therefore is a very limited space and Satan will do everything possible to keep our gaze on that small space. But, when God lifts our head up, we will see the whole horizon before us; the largeness of what He has created for us to enjoy! We will see the greatness of our God. The Good News is that Jesus is well able to ‘lift up your head’ and He is waiting to do so! Psalm 3:3 says, “But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory and the lifter of my head” (ESV). God, through Jesus, wants to lift up your head. Today, I want to assure you, that Jesus wants to “lift up your head”. Allow Him to do so. It will change your outlook on your problem! Will you call upon the mighty name of Jesus and ask Him for help now? Please do!
