But you, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
David was fleeing from his own son Absalom who wanted to be king in place of his father. Imagine living in fear of your own children. Absalom plotted against his father and succeeded for a while, but God's justice prevailed and David became king again.
We see David's trust in God here as he sings this psalm while fleeing from the palace. He believed that God was his shield, his glory and the one who lifts his head high.
Praise God if you have put your trust in Jesus Christ. If you are passing through troubled times, remember that he is your
shield, your glory and the one who lifts your head high. Keep trusting in him. He will give you victory over the problems that you are facing these days.
