Inspiration from Psalm 3

Lord, how many are my foes!
    How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,
    “God will not deliver him.”

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain.

People sometimes say, derisively, “religion is a crutch.” I have no hesitation in saying they are right. My faith is a crutch. It is something for me to lean on because I know that in myself I do not have the resources or strength, because of my brokenness, to be renewed.

I, with David, acknowledge that God (in Christ), is my shield and defender.  Without that crutch I would have been flat on my face a long, long time ago!

One thought on “Inspiration from Psalm 3

  1. Thanks Pieter, that’s so refreshingly simple! We do depend on him, and thank God he wants us to. Thank God he is there for us.
