THE PSALMS

Scripture Passage: Psalm 3 NRSV

Trust in God under Adversity
A Psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.

O Lord, how many are my foes!
    Many are rising against me;
many are saying to me,
    “There is no help for you in God.” Selah

But you, O Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
I cry aloud to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy hill. Selah

I lie down and sleep;
    I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.
I am not afraid of ten thousands of people
    who have set themselves against me all around.

Rise up, O Lord!
    Deliver me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
    you break the teeth of the wicked.

Deliverance belongs to the Lord;
    may your blessing be on your people! Selah

THOUGHTS ON THE SCRIPTURE

Go to God with your troubles and requests. Then listen for an answer and let God do His work through you. Not always an easy thing to do.

Prayer

Help us to remember that we can bring everything to you in prayer. Help us to listen and be open to doing the work you have planned for us. Thank you Lord. Amen
