Psalms Sunday #3

Psalm 3

1Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
6I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
This passage reminds me of Romans 8:31 which says "What shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us"?
There were thousands of men against David, but the one true God of heaven was on his side. David knew that if he trusted in God, that he would be safe from the hands of his son.
When we know that it is God fighting our battles, we should be able to sleep peacefully. :-)

  1. As true as that is, I know sometimes I struggle with giving up the control..even to God..which is a bit silly...since He created the universe and everything. Great post. I added you on the linky, I hope that's okay.
    I forgot to write it, but next week is Psalm 4. See you then.

  2. Thanks for adding me to the linky. I look forward to Psalm 4.
