Sleep in peace…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

 Psalm  3

LORD, how they have increased who trouble me!

​​Many are they who rise up against me.

Many are they who say of me,

​​“There is no help for him in God.” Selah

 ​​But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,

​​My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

 ​​I cried to the LORD with my voice,

​​And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

 ​​I lay down and slept;

​​I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.

 ​​I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people

​​Who have set themselves against me all around.

​​Arise, O LORD;

​​Save me, O my God!

​​For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;

​​You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

 ​​Salvation belongs to the LORD.

​​Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah

Pasted from <http://www.blueletterbible.org/tools/printerFriendly.cfm?b=Psa&c=3&t=nkjvp>

True believers of the message of the cross, true believers who have received the knowledge of God-given through Jesus, true believers have enemies.  They also can say these words in truth with the psalmist.  Note that the request made of God is one that will close the mouths, the voices of the unbeliever who scorns, mocks, and denies the very existence of God.

“…​​For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;

​​You have broken the teeth of the ungodly….”

Note also, those saying these words sleep in peace and trust in the Lord to hear and deliver.

“… ​​I lay down and slept;

​​I awoke, for the LORD sustained me….”

sleep of peace

sleep of peace

Salvation belongs to the LORD.

​​Your blessing is upon Your people.
