Psalms 27:6, And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
It sure is easy to get bogged down in the daily problems of life, huh? The Lord Jesus told us that as long as we live in this world, we will have tribulation. It is very simple; we live in a sin-fallen world. Therefore things are going to go wrong from time to time (can I get a witness?).
What we, as believers, need to be aware of is WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST. When the enemy (the devil) comes against you, remember Who your Lord is. At that remembrance, you can lift your head up above the waves of the storm, above the tempest tossed problems that may be coming your way and you can look BEYOND those problems of the moment (they are only temporary) and see to the glory that lies ahead for you. A question I love to meditate on is this: what does God have for me just around the corner? Wow!
Once we have lifted our heads above the temporary problems of the moment, then we can truly offer up sacrifices of joy and sing praises to the Holy One of Israel. (by the way, as you begin to do that…it just keeps gettin gooder and gooder!!!)
Lord bless you today.
