This morning as I was reading through Psalm 18, I was reminded of a time in my life when I came to know God as my Deliverer. I had known Him as a Friend, a Father, a Comforter, and a Husband, but I had never experienced His delivering power.
Enemies of fear, anxiety, and hopelessness were trying to snuff out my life, but I had to believe that God had better plans for me than to live like that. More than any other passage, the life-changing words from Psalm 18 encouraged me to believe that the Lord was strong enough to deliver even me. I began to trust that He was leading me into true freedom.
Psalm 18 [NKJV]
I will love You, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield …
He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me, For they were too strong for me. …
He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me. …
Today, on the other side of that battle, I can testify of his delivering power. I know He can do anything! I can say with all my heart that because of HIS love and never-ending grace I am free today.
The song I want to share with you this week is God I Look to You, by Jenn Johnson. I pray that as you listen, you will be strengthened by His might and feel His life-giving presence wherever you are.
