Psalm 3:1-3 ” O Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise against me! Many are saying of me, ‘God will not deliver him.’ But You are a shield around me, O Lord; You bestow glory on me and lift up my head.”

Sooner or later it happens to everyone. The Doctor delivers a life-changing diagnosis…a precious loved one suddenly dies…adversaries rise up to discredit our name and reputation…or our own old and weakened body betrays us. That’s when others start to murmur, “The crisis is too severe, their rescue seems impossible, we can’t imagine how God can help them.” But that’s the time when our righteous, true, and holy God is there for us to give us victory over the impossible. Or as Psalm 121:1-2 tells us, “I lift my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth.” If you are going through tough times right now, I would encourage you to read the entire Chapter of Psalm 121, and in addition, Psalm 91 to gain our covenant-keeping God’s perspective on your troubles.
