But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. Psalm 3:3
My dad would never let me walk slouched over with my head down. "Remember son, you are a Ware. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. Even on your worst day you are still my son and a child of God!" God is our protector and our proud Father. He gives us glory because he loves us. Because he is our Father who gives us such gracious gifts, we don’t walk with our head bowed low and our spirits slumped over. He gives us ultimate victory! Even on those dark days when victory is hard to find, we are still God’s children. Our Father paints the sunsets and holds the stars in their orbits. He guarantees our future. How can we walk dejectedly when we remember this?
