And he said: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, even mine; God is my rock in whom I take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge. My savior, you save me from violence.“
2 Samuel 22:2-3
David sings to the Lord a joyful song of thanks.
He praises Him because the Lord had delivered him from the enemies who tried to kill him. Look carefully at the verses.
David’s song of joy declares the Lord is MY rock, MY fortress, and MY deliverer, MY refuge; MY shield, and MY salvation, MY high tower, MY savior, MY God.
The Lord is not far away, but a personal Deliverer in Whom David could take refuge - God would save him from the devouring wicked enemy.
Today, God pours out all of His love on us. His infinite grace showers down upon us. Let us rejoice as David did for His all-caring attention; His unconditional love; His amazing grace and His perfect salvation.
As Job declares, I know that MY Redeemer, Savior, Jesus lives, and that in the end He will stand on the earth, and take me to the eternal home (Job 19:25). All the family of God will have a glorious eternity together.
Each day we will find a new aspect of our Savior and praise Him with hearts full of gratitude.
Thank You, Father, for being MY rock and refuge. Thank You, Jesus, that You are MY Savior and MY ALL in all.
In Your Name, I pray, Amen.
