A BROKEN HEARTED DAD FINDS HELP
Psalm 3 is a tearful little Psalm where a father, King David of Israel, found a place of help and consolation concerning his rebellious son Absalom. The key for David in his deep sorrow is also the key for you and me. When we find ourselves in the valley of despair and depression, we must resort to God.
“But You, O Lord, are a shield for me.” He got the Lord between him and his circumstances. There is nothing else subtle enough to defeat us. Our circumstances are so invasive and so immediate that only God can come between us and them. But when God gets in between us and them we are immune. “Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear.”
“But You, O Lord, are my glory.” That is an honor that need never be stained. My worldly glory can throw mud, and my poor reputation is gone. It seems there is always somebody ready to believe it! But my glory with God, and in God, man’s mud cannot touch that fare fame. Even David’s own son cannot defile his resplendent robe.
“You are the lifter-up of my head.” The flower is blooming again! In the Lord’s presence, we recover our lost spirits. “He restores my soul.” Now my head shall be lifted up above my circumstances round about me. Today if you can identify with King David’s circumstances, do what he did...Resort to God. It really is your key to triumph and victory.
My God shall supply all of my needs!
