But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. Psalm 3:3 (NIV).
My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior– from violent people you save me. 2 Samuel 22:3 (NIV)
You know, a person who can lift your head high…. who can defend you, … even save you from violent people (few can or will do this)…. that is someone you probably want to keep close. Someone who can lift your head high… is a good friend to have.
To think that God so cares about the body, mind and soul of every individual… wow. What a loving God!
