Lifter of My Head
CBN.com Have you
ever noticed while attending to your daily business that you are walking with
your head hanging down? I have caught myself several times hanging my head as
I walk, and it is not a good feeling. During those times I am in deep thought,
discouraged, or full of worry. You actually feel like the weight of the world
is on your shoulders. Thank God, I am quickly reminded of His word:
you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head
Another reason that
it is not wise to walk with your head down is the fact that you may walk into
someone or something! There is one more point I would like to mention. It is the
importance of holding your head up when someone is talking to you. I tell my daughter
quite often, "honey child, look up, and give me eye to eye contact when we are
talking. Look at my nose if it helps you." I am trying to instill confidence in
her now while she is young. I stress to her the importance of knowing who she
is in Christ and as an individual. Another scripture that encourages me as a child
of God is:
I lift up my eyes to the
hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of
heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1,2).
problems arise and the cares of this world are attacking us, remember that God
is in control. We can stand tall, throw our shoulders back, and hold our heads
up in confidence knowing that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens
us. Very often, a song rings in my heart. It is a part of Psalm 3:3.
O lord, art a shield about me, you're my glory and the lifter of my head hallelujah
you're my glory and the lifter of my head.
ministers to me at the time I need it most. That is how God works. He meets us
where we are. He loves us so much, that He gives us a song or a scripture to encourage
us along life's way. He truly is the glory and the lifter of our heads!
