The lifter of my head

Our small group is following this 2-year Bible reading plan, and yesterday the second reading of each day moved from the gospels to the Psalms (so, expect to see a lot from Psalms in the coming days!). I loved this simple verse from Psalm 3



I just can’t get over David calling God “the lifter of my head;” what beautiful imagery! I picture this big, fatherly hand reaching down to lift David’s chin as his enemies surround him and he’s overwhelmed. And what truth there is in knowing that only He can really “lift your head” — there is nothing else that will do.

I think this would be a perfect memory verse for the week — something to hide in your heart to respond when worries and doubts overwhelm you. A truthful reminder that the Lord really is all you need — your protection, your greatest glory, and your true source of joy. You could probably memorize it on your way to work or while washing the dishes today!
