THE LORD IS MY ROCK!
"The Lord is my rock, my strength and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the power that saves me, my high tower."
THOUGHT: This psalm of David is a real cry to the Lord. A man who achieved so many victories and achievements in no time hesitated to say aloud that God was his rock! We see in David's life a deep love for God and the submission of a servant of God. Telling him where he took refuge and who he turned to did not make the king inferior or unprotected, on the contrary, confessing that God was his security made him even stronger! Every time David proclaimed the name of the Lord and said aloud who his rock was, God poured out his favor even more. God blesses the one who recognizes his provision. This principle practiced by David moved the heart of God and leaves us with a great lesson: to worship the Lord with all your strength, with deeds and words. May our mouths adore the Lord and rejoice in his love for us! The more we love God, the more we are loved by Him, His protective power delivers us from all evil. God is our refuge and strength, his word gives us even more comfort and security in our hearts. May this security be clear in our hearts. Fear not, God is with you! God is our rock! - Meditate on Psalm 18, see how powerful were the words proclaimed by David. - Take a moment of prayer praising God for his greatness and strength. Talk about your safety in it.
Prayer: Lord! You are my shield, I am fully protected by You! You have given deliverance and protection, even from things beyond my knowledge. Your power is sovereign and there is nothing and no one can rise up against You! That's why I praise and adore you, my God! Amen!
