Psalm 3English Standard Version, David Cochran Audio
A Psalm of David
O Lord, how many are my foes!
Many are rising against me;
2 many are saying of my soul,
there is no salvation for him in God. Selah
3 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
4 I cried aloud to the Lord,
and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah
5 I lay down and slept;
I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have set themselves against me all around.
7 Arise, O Lord!
Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
you break the teeth of the wicked.
your blessing be on your people!
We all come to a time in our lives where life can be a storm. The wild winds of life begin to pull and tug us in different directions. In the midst of all of that, there is peace. Salvation speaks in our hearts telling us God says He has chosen us. He loves us. We are special to Him. The blessing of forgiveness letting the Spirit be - renewal, redemption - peace.
when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet
Father God, in You, the Light shines in the darkness.

Help us each day to walk the path You give us in Your glory, peace, joie de vivre, knowing we Live God's blessings!! Rejoice in the Name of Jesus Christ, our LORD.
