Lift Your Heart in Praise

September 27, 2019

Psalm 42:11 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
11 Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my God.
.

From ODB – Look Up
“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God” (Ps 42:11). That’s good advice for anyone who is facing discouragement.
.
Lift up your eyes, discouraged one,
The Lord your help will be;
New strength will come from Him who said,
“For rest, come unto Me.” —Anon.
.
When you can’t find a way out, look up!

.
The best way to “Look Up!” is to “Lift Your Heart in Praise!”

A Song:

I will look to You
You are my help and shield

LORD I will lift up my eyes

You are my help and shield

You are the lifter of my head
HalleluYah HalleluYah
You are the lifter of my head

LORD I look to You
You are the lifter of my head!

From Ps 3:3 bible hub{Barnes Notes}

  • My shield – Not only in these dangers, but in all dangers. The declaration here has a general form, as if he could trust in Him at all times.
  • My glory – My honor, or the source of my honor. That is, He bestows upon me all the honor that I have, and it is my glory that I may put my trust in Him.
  • The lifter up of my head – The head, in time of trouble and sorrow is naturally bowed down, as if overpowered with the weight of affliction. Psalm 35:14 : “I bowed down heavily as one that mourneth for his mother;” (Ps 38:6;Ps 42:5; Ps 44:25; Ps 57:6; Jn 19:30) To lift up the head, therefore, or to raise one up, is to relieve his distresses, or to take away his troubles. Such a helper, David says, he had always found God to be, and he looks to Him as one who is able to help him still.

Lifter of My Head

February 28, 2014

Psalm3_3
Image from 365Promises

Psalm 3:1-4 AMP … LORD, HOW they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are saying of me, There is no help for him in God.
Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill.
Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Often when I’m discouraged and feel like I have no strength of my own to lift my head, I think if only I can lift my eyes to the Lord Jesus – He will lift my head. The Lord is faithful, one time the Lord gave me the following song and did just that!

Jesus: The Lifter of My Head

I will lift my eyes past the hills
I will lift my eyes past the mountains

Psalm 121:1-2 AMP … I WILL lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]–From whence shall my help come? … My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

And trust in You, Jesus
To lift my head.

My glory, my shield
Jesus the lifter of my head
My glory, my shield
Jesus, I’ll trust in You
To lift my head

Past the hills
Past the mountains
Jesus, I’ll trust in You
To lift my head.

From ODB-Lift Up Your Eyes

Lift up your eyes, discouraged one,
The Lord your help will be;
New strength will come from Him who said,
“For rest, come unto Me.” —Anon.

Psalm 28:7 AMP … The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.

Jesus the Lifter of My Head

June 20, 2011

Yesterday there seemed to be many obstacles in the way – blocking the path the Lord has set my feet on.
🙂
I cried out to Him for help. He encouraged me with this song – maybe it will encourage you too.

Psalm 3:1-4 AMP … LORD, HOW they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are saying of me, There is no help for him in God.
Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill.
Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

I will lift my eyes past the hills
I will lift my eyes past the mountains
And trust in You, Jesus
To lift my head.

My glory, my shield
Jesus the lifter of my head
My glory, my shield
Jesus, I’ll trust in You
To lift my head

Past the hills
Past the mountains
Jesus, I’ll trust in You
To lift my head.

Isaiah 40:3-5 AMP … A voice of one who cries: Prepare in the wilderness the way of the Lord [clear away the obstacles]; make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God! Every valley shall be lifted and filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked and uneven shall be made straight and level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.

Psalm 27:5-6 AMP … In the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. 6And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me; in His tent I will offer sacrifices and shouting of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

Psalm 61:2 AMP … From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].

God Will Lift Up Your Head!

October 13, 2010

Psalm 33:20 We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.

Psalm 3:3-4 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

4With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

I was grateful this morning that the Lord is my help and shield. I was thanking Him for making a way where there is no way and that He sees the way clearly when I can not. I just need to ‘wait’ in hope for Him to lift up my head and show me the way. It was as if the Lord answered me with this song.
🙂
Be encouraged! God will lift up Your head too!
His hands are strong.

Through waves and clouds and storms,
He gently clears the way
Wait because in His time,
so shall this night
Soon end in joy

🙂

God Will Lift up Your Head
Jars of Clay

Give to the wind your fear
Hope and be undismayed
God hears your sighs and
counts your tears
God will lift up, God
will lift up, lift up
your head

Leave to His sovereign sway
To choose and to command
Then shall we wandering on His way
Know how wise and how strong
How wise and how strong

Through waves and clouds and storms,
He gently clears the way
Wait because in His time,
so shall this night
Soon end in joy, soon end in joy
Soon end in joy, soon end in joy

God will lift up your head
Soon end in joy

Chorus:
God will lift up your head
God will lift up your head
God will lift up your head
Lift up your head

Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of
shame will darken their faces! -Ps 34:5 NLT

🙂

From NetBible Ps 34:5:

radiant — nahar[05102]
1) to shine, beam, light, burn
1a) (Qal) to beam, be radiant
2) to flow, stream
2a) (Qal) to flow, stream
a primitive root; to sparkle, i.e. (figuratively) be
cheerful; hence (from the sheen of a running stream) to flow,
i.e. (figuratively) assemble:-flow (together), be lightened.

!!!!!
radiant as the sheen of a running stream flowing together!

A beautiful shining procession!

Song 6:10‘Who is this that grows like the dawn, As beautiful as the full
moon, As pure as the sun, As awesome as an army with banners{a procession of shining stars}?’

Psalm 87:7They that sing as well as they that dance shall say , All my
fountains are in thee{city of God}.

Isaiah 35:6, 10Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert. … And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
