“Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah” (Psalm 3:1-2).
If you live long enough, you will find yourself professing the statements of verses one and two. You will find that there will be an increase in the number of people that trouble you and rise up against you. You will also have an increased number of people that are talking about you. So today, no matter how many people have increased against you, no matter the whispering and gatherings against you, I predict that the Lord is the shield about you and your glory and the lifter of your head. God will lift up your head and make you smile again.
“I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.” (Psalm 3:4-5)
God is hearing every prayer that you pray. Do not stop praying. There is a difference between those who pray and those who do not pray. God is hearing all your prayers. If you stay in your church long enough, you will learn to believe in prayers. You may not know how powerful verse five is until you meet somebody who says “we went to bed and did not wake up.” I recently saw a story of a woman who got married and twenty-nine days later went to bed with her husband and he simply did not wake up after twenty-nine days of marriage. You will wake up every morning this year in Jesus name!
“I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about” (Psalm 3:6).
I want to say that there has always been danger. There is danger today and danger is only increasing. In every country you go to, you find increasing danger of so many things. A few days ago, a story came out about a man in a local New York hospital who got up and began to shoot in the hospital. You would have thought this would happen in other parts of the world and not in New York and certainly not in a hospital. You are saved from every peculiar danger in your area in Jesus name. When you are a fighter, you will always find people seeking to destroy you. That is why Jerusalem was described as beautiful for situation (Psalm 48:2). If you were going to fight with any city, you would find it difficult to go against the people of Jerusalem because it was up on a hill. You are safe in Jesus name. God has given you a good Jerusalem to secure you and secure your life. Your situation is good in Jesus name.
