Devotion – Psalms 3

S – But you, Lord, are a shield around me, 

      my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. 

      Psalms  3:3 CSB

O – Commentary:  In the face of such antagonism, David found comfort in God’s character. Using the metaphor of a shield, he said that God was the true Source of his protection (in spite of their taunts). The words lifts up my head express restoration to dignity and position

“Psalms,” in The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures

A – As we navigate each day, God gives us some “tools” to help us.  The Holy Spirit, His Word and His character.  When you are in a real relationship with someone, you “know” them.  You know their thoughts, words, convictions and beliefs.  The more you get to know God, you get to know his character.  In this psalm, you see that he protects and he restores. He fights for you and takes away shame and disgrace.  His love goes way beyond salvation.  He loves you right where you are at.

R – Lord, help me to have God’s character in my life as I navigate my day today.
