This week the scripture I've chosen to memorize talks about the Lord lifting up my head. I've been feeling discouraged in the last week because I'm waiting for God to move in a big way. And as I wait, the negative thoughts come to mind, causing my head to hang down in despair.
This verse is a reminder to me that the Lord is a shield from all of those negative thoughts and Satan's arrows of doubt. When my mind is filled with God's promises (His name LORD means He is a promise keeper), He lifts up my head. I don't have to hang my head in hopelessness. He lifts up my head when my confidence is in Him.
But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. ~ Psalm 3:3 (NKJV)
