Deliver Me, O God!
…Many are saying of my soul, "There is no deliverance for him in God." Selah. But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. (Psalm 3:2-4)
For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield. Be gracious to me, O LORD; See my affliction from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death. The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. But You, O LORD, be gracious to me and raise me up, That I may repay them. On God, my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge are of God. For my promotion comes not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes, but my exaltation comes from you O God. Behold our shield, O God, And look upon the face of Your anointed.
"Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the enemies whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent."
Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. Do not fear them, for the LORD your God is the one fighting for you. And you have seen all that the LORD your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the LORD your God is He who has been fighting for you.
For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, "In repentance and rest you will be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength."
The LORD shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. Our God comes; He does not keep silence; before Him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. My God is the Lifter of My Head!
In Jesus name, I pray and praise Him, Amen!
