“You exalted me above my foes;”
[Yes, Lord, “You rescue me from my strong enemies, from my foes who are too strong for me.” (Psalm 18:17)]
“from violent men you rescued me.”
[They “confronted me on the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place. He rescued me because he delighted in me” (Ps. 18:18,19).]
Again in the Middle East I was put on trial for mailing gospel letters into the country. I actually had nothing to do with it, but the judges said, “That doesn’t matter; if this proves to be illegal, you will go to jail!”
Then one judge added, “First we will send this case to a specialist in the capital named Dr. T.” Dr. T was my friend! I knew then he would give a proper opinion on the case and I would not have to go to jail! On the day of my disaster the Lord was my support.
Psalm 18:49 “Therefore I will praise you among the nations, O LORD; I will sing praises to your name.”
[You are Lord, the God who fights for us, you are worthy of glory and honor and exaltation and praise, for you are the Savior of all, especially of those who believe in you. You are worthy of being lifted up among the nations.
You are the Most High, you are Lord, you are Sovereign, you are Good, all the time.
In every circumstance I can trust you, bow before you, follow your Word and know that you will work it all out. To you be glory and honor today as I willingly submit my will to yours.]
