Psalm 27:6 "My head shall be lifted up above my enemies"
Day 206 – Psalm 27
“My head shall be lifted up above my enemies” Psalm 27:6
David had deep assurance that he would triumph over his enemies. This assurance was well expressed in the following text:-
“And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praise to the LORD.”
1. “And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies”
a) In battle
i) There is defeat (conquered).
ii) There is victory (conqueror).
b) Assurance of victory
i) Conquering the enemy
ii) This is expressed in the term “my head shall be lifted up above my enemies”.
2. “Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle”
a) There was anticipation of worship after victory in war.
b) The manner of worship was already planned.
i) It would be in the Lord’s tabernacle (literal/physical).
ii) There would be sacrifices of joy.
iii) There would be wonderful singing of praise to the Lord.
APPROPRIATE RESPONSE- WORSHIP
It was natural for David to consider worship as the most appropriate response. What would God desire than heartfelt worship? David’s close relationship with the Lord and his deep knowledge of Him taught him that the best response he could make would be “to sing praises to the LORD!”
