Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side church. Feel free to following along.
Today’s reading (Psalms 17 & 18) has one common theme. In chapter 18 David is just coming out of a time in his life where he has many enemies … one of those being his father-in-law King Saul.
David says “I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.” David spends time daily in prayer with God. When things get tough for him he is turning to God to draw strength and support. Because of this he can then say this:
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
David has a relationship with God. He turns to God to draw strength and support. Because of that relationship he knows that God is his rock, fortress, and deliver. Is your relationship with God tight enough that you could be confident that he is your rock, fortress and deliverer? I know I need to grow closer to God in many areas of my life, how about you?
