Today I read Psalms 3 and decided to share it for my TT post. I found in this small chapter SO much to be thankful for.
God thank you so much that you are my shield, your protection is all around me. You are my glory, my abundance and the One who lifts me up. You alone sustains me and my salvation belongs to you.
I love that the Greek word for lifts mean be exalted, to be uplifted and cause to grow up. He is the One who lifts my head. Head in the Greek means (top, total, sum). So God is the One who causes my total being to be uplifted! That is something that is praiseworthy!! So often we look to other things or other people to lift us up but it is God, in His glory who lifts us up!
God also sustains me, which means he upholds me. I can lean on Him, and rest upon Him. Sustain in this verse can also mean refresh, revive. What better way to be refreshed than to let the Lord your God revive me.
Thank you God that you are the one I can run to when I need uplifted. When I feel tired and don’t have the mental or physical strength to take another step I only need to rest upon You. You will refresh my Spirit. You will lift me up and cause me to grow and continue on the journey you have placed me on
