Scripture for the day...
A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom. ~ New International Version
1 O Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”
3 But you are a shield around me, O Lord;
you bestow glory on me and liftb up my head.
4 To the Lord I cry aloud,
and he answers me from his holy hill.
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not fear the tens of thousands
drawn up against me on every side.
7 Arise, O Lord!
Deliver me, O my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people. ~ Psalm 3:3-8
I Love this scripture it helps me remember that God is is my EVERYTHING (shield, protector, provider, deliver, ect...). The one and only part it didn't appreciate was verse 7, about the "break the teeth of the wicked"! lol
