I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.
King David, a servant of the Lord, spoke to Him the words of this song on the day that the Lord, our God, our sovereign saviour, delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and especially from the hand of King Saul. Here God is praised for His glorious works and blessings through the years.
God’s protection of His people is limitless and can take many forms. David characterised God’s care with five military symbols.
God is like:-
- A rock that can’t be moved by any who would harm us.
- A fortress or place of safety where the enemy can’t follow.
- A shield that comes between us and harm.
- A symbol of might that can save us( POWER THAT SAVES).
- A place of safety high above our enemies.
Beloved, our God is the only one who can deliver us from all the issues of life and from all the enemies that surrounds us. David referred to the Lord as his rock, fortress and deliverer. He knew this from all the battles he fought and how God stood by him and gave him victory.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever -HEBREWS 13:8.
He can do the same for us. Let us continually look up to Him for protection.
Let us continually call upon the name of our God and He will surely deliver us from all our troubles in Jesus name.
