Confidence in the Lord

Faced with the taunts of his enemies the Psalmist shows here how much he places his confidence in the Lord for defence, rescue and help. In these very uncertain times we must remember that we are fortunate enough to be able to do the same.

Psalm 3:1-8

I have so many enemies, Lord,

so many who turn against me!

They talk about me and say,

‘God will not help him.’

But you, O Lord, are always my shield from danger;

you give me victory

and restore my courage.

I call to the Lord for help,

and from his sacred hill he answers me.

I lie down and sleep,

and all night long the Lord protects me.

I am not afraid of the thousands of enemies

who surround me on every side.

Come Lord! Save me, my God!

You punish all my enemies

and leave them powerless to harm me.

Victory comes from the Lord -

may he bless his people.

Lord God, as you were with the Psalmist, be with each one of us today.
