Psalm 3 – Captivated

Today is Day 3 of our Summer Bible Study, Sailing Through Psalms, and we are in Psalm 3.

I am completely captivated by my Savior!
His love overwhelms me!
How great is our God?!

The two verses that stood out the most to me during my quiet time today were verses 3, 4 and 5!

Psalm 3:3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. (NKJV)

Shield: protection, security, safeguard, defense, shelter.
Glory: magnificence, honor, praise.

Psalm 3:4 I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill.

This brought me to Psalm 116:2, “Because He bends down to listen I will pray as long as I have breath.”
Isn’t it beyond amazing how He hears every utter from our lips, and every cry from our hearts when we just don’t have the words?

Psalm 3:5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. (NKJV)

Sustain: strengthen, comfort, support, carry.

A promise that I always like to remind myself of during particularly tough times: “I will carry you, Shar.” – God

Isaiah 46:4 “Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I made you and I will carry you. I will sustain and I will rescue you.”

God is just so beautiful!
His love is crazy-amazing!
The way He cares about us is indescribable.

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God!!!

A few more takeaways from today:
+ God is more than our protection. He is everything.
+ Glory is found in God. Not power, fame or earthly possession.
+ No matter how big or small a situation may be, when we cry out to Him, He hears us!
+ If God is for us, then who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)

One thought on “Psalm 3 – Captivated

  1. I found it amazing how much you can learn about God in just 8 verses! He wraps around me like an impenetrable shield. He gives me confidence. He answers me. He supports me. He liberates/delivers me; He sets me FREE! And last of all He blesses me. With so many blessings. Thank you, Lord!
