He Answered Me
David introduced Divine Warrior language in Psalm 3 for he states: But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy hill. ~Selah. David's attitude and outlook embraces the theology that Paul summarized in Rom. 8:31, "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
We have security in Christ. For He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? (Rom. 8 32). Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? (v.35) No, in all this things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (v.37).
Lord, I come to you with a humble heart. Thank you for giving us everlasting life through Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior. For he is my shield about me, and my glory and lifter of my head. I cry aloud to you and you answer me from your holy hill. You have given me the strength to live and to stand. You are my defender who goes before me. My trust is in you. May all that I do point to you. May you be glorified and lifted high. O, but to one day hear the sound of my LORD and Savior say, "Well done my good and faithful servant." I pray all of this in the name of my LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, amen
