Shielded by the Lord

Psalm 3:3 KJV But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
 
In this Psalm, David is fleeing from his son, Absalom. David, no doubt, feels betrayed and is heart broken. Each of us have experience this type of circumstance on some level in our life. We have been betrayed by a friend. We have had someone close to us break our heart. The truth is that it will likely happen again in our life. What do we do in these type of circumstances? We go to the Lord and lean on Him. He will shield us as we go through painful things. He will life us up and will give us a measure of glory. We can depend on Him.
