Without God, we are lost. We are not equipped to walk through the trials without Him.
So often people spend all their time trying to figure out “why” something happened to them, and they do not walk in the protection and peace that God can give them. Not only does He offer us peace, but like the verse says, He promises to be the lifter of our heads.
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me;
my glory, and the
lifter up of mine head.
When I think of Him being the lifter of my head, I picture myself emotionally beat up, tired and battle weary with my head hanging low.
“Child you are mine, look up and square your shoulders daughter because you ….are….mine.”
