But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. Psalm 3:3
picking up where we left off yesterday…
And He is our Glory also. For the purpose of man is to know God. The essence of life is to walk in and fulfill all the purposes of the King. To this end, He is our Glory! He is that which we are cloaked in and shall be crowned with….Selah
The Lord also is the lifter up of our head! It is he who strips away from us the garments of shame and places upon us in its place the cloak of many colors…the insignia of His Love.
When men shall see us and scorn at us saying…there is no help for him, the Lord shall thunder forth His answer by revealing His mighty hand…it is the Lord who picks us up and places our feet upon solid ground…it is He who shall comfort us and succor our hearts and fill our mouths with laughter….it is He who shall wipe away the tears from our eyes and whisper into our ears the sweet songs of agape.
It is the Lord who places his hand upon our chins and lifts up our heads out of shame and defeat and despair, into feasting in love and glory and victory as we gaze steadily into his eyes and are awestruck as we are overwhelmed again and again by his infinite Love! Thank you Dear Lord!
O someone tell a brother…tell a sister…tell the brethren…the Lord is our shield, our glory and the lifter up of our heads.
