The Lord Lifts Up our Head

Psalms 3:1 Jehovah, how many are they that trouble me, many they that rise up against me!   2 Many say of my soul, There is no salvation for him in God. Selah.   3 But thou, Jehovah, art a shield about me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head.   4 With my voice will I call to Jehovah, and he will answer me from the hill of his holiness. Selah.   5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked, for Jehovah sustaineth me.   6 I will not fear for myriads of the people that have set themselves against me round about.   7 Arise, Jehovah; save me, my God! For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheekbone, thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked.   8 Salvation is of Jehovah; thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Consider the encouragement in this Psalm.  The psalmist is praying “With my voice will I call to Jehovah“.  And after the short prayer, look at what the Lord does:

1. lifter up of my head
2. a shield about me
3. sustaineth me
4. Salvation is of Jehovah

The Lord does much when we pray.
