LORD, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.” But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. -v.1-3
I don’t have people surrounding me as in war, but people will hold their traditions very tightly.
I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. -v.5,6
This psalm will be great for my prayers. I must not let any multitude of people who are set against me discourage me. The Lord will sustain me if I follow Him.
