"I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies" (Psalm 18:1-3). That's what David said when he was going through turmoil with his enemy, Saul. David called out to the Lord and the Lord answered him. And in Psalm 18:6/7 he said, "In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears."
God will also deliver you and I from anyone or anything coming against us. Who is coming for you? What is coming for you? Don't you know that God will deliver you from that person or that thing? He certainly will.
"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me" (Psalm 18:16-19).
Yes, David made it through the valley, because he loved the Lord and the Lord loved him. The same applies for us today as kingdom citizens. God is our deliverer and we will be able to go to new heights and new levels in Him when we delight ourselves in Him, just as David did.
Jesus is my deliverer; a very present help in the time of trouble.ReplyDelete
