A Message for Today

Gratitude for deliverance and victory.

Theme: The only sure way to be delivered from surrounding evil is to call upon God for help and strength.

Psalm 18:1-3 >  I love you O 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.

Focus points:

This psalm is  almost a duplicate of  2 Samuel 22.it may have been written toward the end of David’s life when there was peace. God is praised for hos glorious works and blessings through the years.  God’s protection of his people is limitless and can take many forms. David characterized God’s care with five military symbols. God is like (1) a rock that can’t be moved by any who would harm us. (2) f fortress or place of safety where the enemy can’t follow, (3) a shield that comes between us and harm, (4) a horn of salvation, a symbol of might and power (5) a stronghold high above our enemies. If you need protection, look to God.
