The Deliverer is NEAR

I am not surrounded by human foes that verbalize threats as David was.

That might be too easy.

Instead I'm encircled, hounded by unseen challenges and irrational fears that threaten my peace.

Thankfully God PROMISES to answer my cries from His holy hill. 

I am able to sleep and awake because God SUSTAINS me. 

I call out for deliverance and it comes from the LORD. Hallelujah!

Psalm 3

A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, how many are my foes!
    How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,
    “God will not deliver him.[b]
But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain.
I lie down and sleep;
    I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
I will not fear though tens of thousands
    assail me on every side.
Arise, Lord!
    Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
    break the teeth of the wicked.
From the Lord comes deliverance.
    May your blessing be on your people.
