Today, we’re taking a look at another psalm. Don’t forget the main focus of each psalm is Jesus who is the Son of God, one with the Father and the Spirit. In Psalm 18:1, 2, 3, 46, David, the servant of the Lord, says,
1. I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
2. 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.
3. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
And I am saved from my enemies.
46. The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock;
And exalted be the God of my salvation. (NASB)
Through life’s trials, let us remember that “Fearing God replaces fear of others and things” (author unknown). Nothing can sway God, nothing can change His plans, no one can change His mind. When we call on Him and trust in Him, we know that He is “my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,” because He says so. He loves His people, and nothing can get between Him and us (Romans 8:31-39). When life falls apart around us, it’s comforting to know that He won’t leave us or fail us, even if everything in this world does. He’s always with us, and like a rock, nothing will move Him. We can rely on Him. Everything He promises in the Bible, He’ll do. Always has, always will. “Blessed be my Rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation.”
