LORD, it seems like so many are against me. They say You are against me.
I know better. You are my shield. You lift me up. I call out to You and You answer.
When I sleep and then awake it is because You have protected and sustained me through the night. I will not fear what is all around me.
Stand up for me, LORD! Deliver me! Strike down my enemies!
I know You will deliver me! Bless Your people!
Blessings to you and yours!
Sunday Psalms are the Psalms written in my own words. They are what they mean to me. I hope you enjoy this series. When you click on the Psalm number at the top it will take you to the NIV version on BibleGateway.com
David wrote Psalm 3 during a time of great persecution. His confidence in the LORD is very evident in this Psalm. He was able be courageous and strong because He knew the Word and the promises in it.
LORD, I have so many enemies that are against me. They are saying You will not deliver me. I know better than that. You are my shield, my glory, the One who lifts me up. When I call out to You, wonder of all wonders, You answer from Your home on high.
When I rest, You sustain me and keep me safe. Even though it feels like thousands are attacking from every side I will not fear. You will deliver me by giving them a punch in the jaw.
From You comes deliverance and blessings on your people. (My personal transliteration of Psalm 3.)
