“O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
you have covered my head in the day of battle.
As for the head of those who compass me about,
let the mischief of their own lips cover them.”
Psalm 140:7, 9
To have God “cover your head” with His strength is to have Him protect you. But He can also cover heads with trouble and sorrow by causing the ungodly to reap their sinful deeds.
The safest thing to do is to have Jesus as your head. He will always be covered with God’s greatest blessings, for God has made him “most blessed forever” (Ps. 21:6).
