The Lord is our strength, as well as our light and our salvation; and this fact removes all anxiety from our life. Even when wicked people and circumstances impose evil on us to harm us, they falter and fail. We walk in contentment through it all (Psalm 27:1-4).
God hears our prayers for His help and quickly comes to our aid (Psalm 18:6). As we dwell continually in His presence, His goodness and mercy protect us all the days of our life (Psalm 23:6).
Rather than living our own way, we walk in His holiness, delight in His presence, honor His precepts and enjoy worshiping with His Saints. His favor rests on us, and He establishes our ministry for His glory (Psalm 90:17; Isaiah 58:13).
He parts the heavens, soars on wings of the wind, hurls thunder and lightning to scatter our enemies, reaches down from His lofty place and holds us in the palm of His hand (Psalm 18:1-9; John 10:28-29).
He protects us when disaster threatens to overwhelm us, and places us in wide open spaces and rescues us from all of our affliction, because He delights in us (Psalm 18:10-19).
We intimately experience the power, protection and provision of His name. He gives His angels charge over us to keep us in all of our ways. They carry us in their hands, so that we do not even stub our toe on life’s rocky places.
If we focus our love upon Him, He delivers us (Psalm 91:11-12). There is nothing too hard for Him (Luke 18:27). He makes the impossible aspects of life achievable, as we dwell in His presence (Matthew 19:26).
Father God, Your presence in our life allows us to leap high walls, arms us with strength, trains us for spiritual warfare, lights our way, makes us nimble in traversing the pitfalls in life, stoops down to make us great and sets us safely on Your high places (Psalm 18:29-46).
You made the heavens and the earth by Your outstretched arms, nothing is too hard for You to accomplish in order to equip us to do Your will (Jeremiah 32:17). If we depend on You, You give us Your wisdom and reveal to us the great and mighty things You have in store for us (Jeremiah 33:3). We abide in You and take refuge under the shelter of Your wings (Psalm 61:4).
Thought for the Day:
Seek the Lord while He may still be found; call on Him while He is still near; for the great and terrible day of the Lord is at hand.
– Isaiah 55:6; Joel 2:3; Malachi 4:5
