Psalm 3 ~ “SECURITY OF GOD’S PROTECTION.”

Psalm 3

 

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

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.

But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

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.

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

  1. Sometimes when I think of Absalom, I think of an old audio sermon by Lester Roloff called “and the mule walked on.”
    It was about the heartless nature of sin. That mule that Absalom rode to his death represented sin. And after Absalom was caught up in the oak tree to his peril…the mule walked on.

  2. I found this to share:
    And The Mule Walked On
    “…and the mule that was under him went away.” —2 Samuel 18:9

    “Lester Roloff used to preach a message about the slaying of Absalom from 2 Samuel 18:9. He would preach, “Absalom rode the mule of sin and it came up under an oak tree and that long hair of his got hung up in the brush… and the mule walked on! That’s the mule of sin! Ain’t nobody rode the mule of sin without gettin’ hurt. It’ll let you ride it until it hangs you, then it will leave you hanging out to die! Best thing to do is get off before you git hung!”

    “Better still, don’t get on that mule in the first place!”

      1. It was a link to a sermon called “the lost fear of God,”
        But the link didn’t get installed with my comment.
        (Im making this comment so that my previous comment makes sense to the reader).☺

  3. I love verses 3 through 5 of this Psalm! The picture of the Lord graciously reaching down His hand to lift my head to gaze into His loving eyes has been a comfort to me many times. And the fact that He listens to my cry and sustains me while I sleep is so awesome, given His holy nature compared to my propensity to wander from His way. How wonderful that He would choose to love me and keep an eye out for me! 😊
