Psalm 18:2 “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;”
[You, Jehovah, the holy and sin-hating God, are our mighty Rock: unshakable, unmovable, unending and unchanging, ever stable, ever trustable. On you we can take our stand, on you we can rely, in you alone our souls find rest.
On this great Rock of safety, you are also our mighty Fortress in which we can take refuge, hidden away from the enemy. This Fortress is undefeatable, impregnable and impenetrable. The enemy can never breach the walls of your love, can never touch us without your permission, can never defeat your plans.
You are also our faithful Deliverer, fighting for us in your might, wisdom and love. You foil the plans of the nations and thwart the purposes of the peoples. The enemy can never trick you, surprise you or defeat you. You are ever on guard, alert, active.
Even in your weakness as a man, Lord Jesus, with the possibility of defeat and failure yawning before you, with death overtaking your body, you were solid as a rock. At the right moment you rose up to win, to defeat death and the devil, to open the way to life for all. You are the God triumphant, the Deliverer of all who are oppressed.
And you continue with that every day, surrounding us with your grace, goodness and glory in the ongoing spiritual warfare. We can stand with you, in you, by you, for you, clothed with your amour, empowered by your grace, guided by your wisdom, partnered with you in victory. Praise be to you!
Help us to so stand today, Lord Jesus, so that glory and honor may flow from us to you continually.]
