Psalms 3:1-4:1 – “O LORD, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me. 2 Many are saying of my soul, “There is no deliverance for him in God.” Selah. 3 But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. 4 I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah. 5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustains me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me round about. 7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God! For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked. 8 Salvation belongs to the LORD; Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.” NASU
This morning is so still it would be eerie except for the peace it brings. Cool, damp and wonderful. As I sat drinking my coffee, reading Psalm 3 and listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit, the Lord spoke to my heart about our distress as a people.
I, as many of you, have for some time contemplated the rise of the enemies of America and the increase in the activities of the evil one in our land and even against our lives and those of our family and friends. Some have even gone into a deep state of depression over what they see and because they see no deliverance on the horizon, their faith has waned, and their hearts have grown weak. Others are having become like the Children of Israel while in Egyptian bondage and have daily and incessantly been crying out for DELIVERANCE! We live in troubling times and are facing trouble on every hand. Except for God’s hand of deliverance we perish!
I heard the Lord speak to me, “Relax, I’m not through yet. Continue to do all I’ve told you and tell you to do but relax I will work a work in your day that even if I told you, you would not believe it.” We do not have to fear the thousands of people or thousands of thousands who have set themselves or will set themselves against us. We do not have to fear the powers of hell that are in or will set themselves in array against us for we have and are crying out to the Lord of Host to DELIVER us. We will see the day when GOD smites the cheek or SLAPS THE FACE of the enemy and shatters their teeth of the wicked. Salvation belongs to God and we are children of the Most High God! His blessings are and will be upon His people!
Therefore, rise up, shake yourselves and rejoice for your HELP is in GOD, your HOPE is in GOD, your DELIVERANCE is in GOD and He has not FORGOTTEN us. Pray with fervency and work with diligence for our day of deliverance is coming! I rejoice in that word this morning and encourage you to do so as well.
Blessings to you as you begin this beautiful day in the Lord! Lift up your voice and rejoice!
