David says in Psalm 140 verse 7:
7 …You have covered my head in the day of battle.
The day of battle speaks to me of days and times when the pressure mounts up and mentally we under stress with lots piling up on our plate, and we feel overwhelmed.
At such times Satan attacks our head, our mind and emotions with fear, anxiety, with feelings of being overwhelmed and the temptation to give up, withdraw and pull back from the course we are on, what we are pursuing.
But as this verse says, at times like that God covers our head. He wants to meet us in a very real and practical way, exactly at those mental and emotional pressure points in our mind and soul and minister His peace and grace exactly into those places. He covers our head, our mind and emotions, with His grace and peace. He does it so that we can realistically follow the advice Paul gave Timothy when he said to him ” keep your head in all situations” ( 2 Timothy 4:5).
God covers our head so we can keep it !
