Psalm 3 contains some powerful imagery; but, as I was reading this morning, verse 3 showed me God in a new way: “But you, O Lord, are…. the lifter of my head.”
- a nurse lifting a patient’s head to give him water and medicine
- a mother gently caressing her child’s chin, lifting their head, speaking assurance into their eyes
- a father lifting his son’s head to speak strength and encouragement to his soul
- a friend lifting another friends head, reminding him of who he is in Christ
These are all pictures of God – our healer, our encourager, our strength, our identity. He is the one who touches and is the one who lifts.
