Psalm 18

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.
Psalm 18:1-2

As we read Psalm 18 together, we see right away David’s overwhelming love for the LORD and his acknowledgement that the LORD is his source, his strength! We can see from the very beginning of this psalm a beautiful relationship…David loved and trusted the LORD. He knew that God was a necessity in all life circumstances – He is all we need. David reminds us of what he knew to be true about God.

Today, let’s look at the three of these attributes:
The LORD is our
  • ROCK, He is our solid foundation that is unchanging. He is our strength and stability, a place of shelter, safety, and a secure standing.
  • FORTRESS, He is our place of strength and safety, He is our shelter and surrounding protection.
  • DELIVERER, He is the One who makes a way of escape, our Savior, the One who rescues us from our hopeless situations.
David’s life was not always easy. In fact, David spoke to the LORD the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all of his enemies and from the hand of Saul. In spite of the dark days, loneliness, danger, and enemies, David knew that the LORD was with him and that it was the LORD that would defend and protect him.
Today, there are still many uncertainties and unknowns, but we can learn from David and cling to the LORD. Use this time to stay home and stay in the Word, cultivate your relationship with the LORD, get to know Him better, and like David, trust Him in all life circumstances.
