Psalm 22:20, 21“Deliver my life from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs. Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen.”

[You did just that for Jesus, saving Him from  the power of death, the devil and destruction,  and now you do it for us. Praise you that whatever form the enemy’s attacks take, you, Lord, can and will deliver us through or from them in your time and way. No one and nothing is strong enough to overcome you.

You let through only the attacks that you will use for good in our lives, for strengthening our faith, for putting to death our wrong desires, our natural responses and selfish goals, while giving us a platform for sharing with others about you.

You are the perfect coach, putting us through the experiences that will equip, mature, prepare and train us for righteousness and faith in the spiritual war we are in.

Praise be to you, the Most High, King of Kings, Lord of Love, God of Goodness, Savior of sinners. Before you I now bow down in surrender. Help me to rise up to live in trust, obedience, praise and thanksgiving throughout today. Amen.
