I hope to encourage you this morning. Psalm 3 to start your day. There is a beauty in the Passion Translation that just really highlights God’s love and glory.
Lord, I have so many enemies, so many who are against me Listen to how they whisper their slander against me saying ” Look! He’s hopeless! Even God can’t save him from this!”
You can insert any problems or struggles you might have, it doesn’t have to just be people who are whispering against you. It can just be about the enemy messing with you.
But hear how God is our help! Our provider! Our King and saving grace!
But in the depths of my heart, I truly know that you, Yahweh, have become my shield;
You take me and surround me wjth yourself.
Your glory covers me continually.
You lift high my head when I bow low in shame.
I have cried out to you, Yahweh, from your holy presence.
You send me a Father’s help.
In the deptha of our hearts, we know His love endures forever. His mercy is great and His grace is more than enough! He will never leave us nor forsake us!
So now I’ll lay down and sleep like a baby- then I will awake in safety, for you surround me with your glory.
Even though dark powers prowl around me, I won’t be affraid.
He surrounds you with His glory! You are in His arms, His love, His grace, His favor. He is unshaken and glorious! He is with you and nothing can stand against you because of Him!
I simply cry out: Rise up and help me, Lord! Come and save me!
And you will slap them in the face, breaking the power of their words to harm me.
My true hero comes to my rescue, for the Lord alone is my savior.
What a feast of favor and bliss He gives His people.
Rise up and help me Lord! He hears you call out to Him! He is our hero, comes to our rescue! A feaat of favor and bliss He gives to us! The love of a Father!
Just meditate on His love… take time to remember who you are in Him. Remind yourself who He is and strengthen yourself in Him! He is a mighty King! A warrior in battle for us! He is greater than where we are and what we are going through and He loves us! He desires blessings and great things for us as we are adopted sons and daughters in His Kingdom because of Jesus…. because of Jesus.
Thank you Lord- Hallelujah, Amen!
