“You, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.”
“Keep your head up.” As athletes, we usually hear this statement after a loss or disappointing effort. The most difficult “lift” of the day may be keeping our head high after a tough workout, practice, or competition.
But, who is the actual lifter specified in our passage above? Even in the most difficult times, God promises you can always keep your head up, since He is the one who does the lifting. His grace, unending love, and sheer greatness cannot be compared to any circumstance here on earth no matter how tough it gets. As we focus our gaze on Him, we can easily keep our head up.
“I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2)
