 Thought For Today - July 9
 Speak to God!

    "And David spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the day that the Lord had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul: And he said, the Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; the God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence." 2 Samuel 22: 1-3
David spoke unto the Lord and sang songs of praise and thanksgiving for God's deliverance from all his enemies, and for all his blessings.
    When we speak unto the Lord, what do we say to him? Is he pleased with our salutation to him? Do we approach him with respect and adoration, acknowledging his rule and sovereignty over us?
David acknowledged that he had won victories and was delivered from his enemies because of God's grace and love for him. His prayer and song of praise to God was in remembrance of all of God's favors and blessings. He recognized that God was his fortress and strong defense, and he called unto the Lord to tell him so.
    No battle is ever won with a multitude of men or horses without God's protection. No blessing ever comes to us unless God ordains it; and no salvation unless God chooses to save us, which he did when he sent Christ into the world to lay down his life for all who would believe. Nothing can harm us unless God allows it.
    We ought to speak to God in prayer the first thing in the morning. When we speak to God, our first words ought to be words of thanksgiving and praise. We ought to approach God as our father and tell him that we remember when we were yet sinners, and without hope in the world, and that Christ Jesus came into the world to save us,. We called upon him and he answered us, and he did save us.
    What a great privilege God our father has granted to us that through our Lord and savior Jesus Christ we have access to his throne of grace to speak with him when we are happy or, when we arc sad; when we have plenty or, when we are in want; when we are in danger, or when we are safe; when we are sick or, in good health.
    Let us always remember that God is our rock, our fortress, our high tower, and call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised.
"I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." 2 Samuel 22 4
