I Love You, Lord, My Strength.The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress and my Deliverer, my God, my Mountain where I seek refuge, my Shield and the Horn of my Salvation, my Stronghold.I called to the Lord, Who is worthy of Praise, and I was saved from my enemies.Psalm 18:1-3
Have you ever noticed that people, who claim to be a “self-made” man or woman, will brag about all of their GREAT claims to fame?Or how they have ACCOMPLISHED so much, and ALL because of their BRILLIANT MINDS, and their TALENTED ABILITIES.Now, just where did they get those BRILLIANT MINDS and TALENTED ABILITIES, if it wasn’t for the GRACE of GOD?
When God created mankind, He created them with a BRAIN, so that they might be able to THINK and REASON, in order to survive and in a lot of cases to PROSPER.The PROBLEM is that mankind has TURNED AWAY FROM their CREATOR GOD, and have come to the conclusion that, they don’t NEED Him. But like King David, when their backs are against the wall, and they have run out of SELF-MADE IDEAS and MONEY won’t be able to BUY them solutions to their problems.They want and EXPECT God to come to their aid.
We who are TRUE BELIEVERS, and TRUST in God for ALL our NEEDS and the solutions to ALL our PROBLEMS, we place our TRUST in Him, because He is:our STRENGTH, our ROCK, He provides SECURITY and STABILITY when we are WEAK, He is STRONG.He is our FORTRESS or our HIDING PLACE, a REFUGE during the STORMS of LIFE.He is our DELIVERER, He is the ONLY ONE who can give us DELIVERANCE from the devil and his devious schemes.He CAN and WILL DELIVER us from our sins and give us an ETERNAL INHERITANCE of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.He is our STRONG MOUNTAIN, where we can RUN to and receive PROTECTION, when we are faced with enemies that want to overcome us and DEFEAT us.He is our SHIELD and the HORN of our SALVATION; God can give us STRENGTH to be OVERCOMERS and to be VICTORIOUS in this TEMPORARY life.The animal HORNS were symbols of STRENGTH and MIGHT.What a MIGHTY GOD we serve, and is MORE than WORTHY of our PRAISE and TRUST.
So, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, and have NOT offered Him your PRAISE and TRUST, then you are facing an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE. Just REMEMBER that the ONLY prayers that GOD HEARS are the PRAYERS of HIS CHILDREN.(Ps. 66:18) And until you COME TO HIM with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and CONFESS your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, and BELEVING with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.And then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, you are NOT His Child, you are His creation, but NOT HIS CHILD.When you come to Him with this prayer, He WILL HEAR and ACCEPT you as one of His own.So, do this NOW, while you still can.He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
