Good Morning! Today’s devotional mediation is taken from Psalm 3:3, which says,

But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.” (ESV).

There will be times when we are in situations that only God will be our source of strength and encouragement. The psalmist David was in a state of despair and discouragement in which no one was able to help him to get out of. He needed help quickly.

Those are times when only what we know about God will only be what we have for our encouragement and strength. David remembered that the LORD was his only help and hope. He remembered that the LORD was the only one that could lift up his head and give him the comfort, courage and confidence he needed to keep pressing on.

When we face dark times in our lives; and troubles keep mounting, we must focus on our only hope which is in the LORD. There will be times when God will put us in situations where we can only call on Him for relief. He is faithful.

May the LORD bless you and keep you.
