September 6, 2019 – Psalm 18:1-3

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3.

As I read these the first three verses of Psalm 18, I wonder how I could describe my Lord God.  Suddenly words fade away, and tears come to my eyes.  For Who else comforts day and night?  Who can Love like God and is indestructible?  Who Else but our Lord can redeem me from the sin lurking around me? 

He placed eternity in my heart, so that I would always long for Him. He gives me songs in the night. He teaches me His way from those around me. The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation. Psalm 18:46.

My soul ever sing, The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1.  

Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies. I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!  Psalm 27:11, 13-14.

How can I say thanks, for the things You have done for me?  To God be the Glory!  (A. Crouch)

For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?—the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. Psalm 18:31-33.
