You Can Call Upon The Lord

 

I love you, O Lord , my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord , who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalms 18:1-3

 

 

What a great excerpt of scripture to keep in our hearts. Can you imagine how differently we would perceive our daily lives if we viewed them through the lens of these verses? How might our attitudes change? How might we appear to the world around us? What would they think? Would it draw them to us? Would it draw them to Christ?

 

This is believed to have been written by David at the time the Lord rescued him from Saul and all of David’s enemies. It is the beginning of an ancient song David penned as a result of God’s grace on his life.

 

I believe we can all look back over our lives at the most difficult times, the times God has brought us through, and praise him for his faithfulness as our strength, as our deliverer, our fortress, our refuge, our shield, and our place of safety. To those who acknowledge the Lord’s involvement in our lives… he is overwhelming! He strengthens us through our weakness, he give us sound footing when our world crumbles, he protects us when the enemy is at the door, he whisks us away from danger, he is constant when everything else is changing, he is our shelter from the storms, his defenses are impenetrable, and for all of this he is more than worthy of our praise.

 

I pray your days have been blessed by this wisdom from God’s Word.

About Mitchell Norton
My life was changed when God saw fit to forgive me of my rebellion against him. I am not worthy of a righteous God, and I am thankful that he reached out to me. My walk with the Lord has lead me to understand that loving others is just as important as loving God. I am a husband to a beautiful wife, father to an adorable daughter (and one on the way!), and servent of the Gospel. I am not perfect, but one day I will be. "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence." - Jeremiah 17:7
