“I love you, O Lord, my strength.
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.
I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies” (Ps. 18:1-3ESV).
I love my Lord God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is my Rock and my salvation. Jesus gave his life as a ransom for all people so that we could be forgiven our sins and could have the hope of eternal life with God in heaven. Yet, he did not die just so we could go to heaven one day, but so we could be free from the control of Satan and sin over our lives while we walk the face of this earth; and so we could be free in the power and strength of the Spirit of God within us to walk in His righteousness and holiness all our days. Amen!
It is by God’s grace, through faith, that we are saved. The way we come to know Christ, by faith, is by submitting, yielding and surrendering to the work of God’s grace in our hearts, and by allowing and cooperating with the Spirit of God in his work of transformation in our lives. God will never force his will upon us. We must choose to accept his work of grace in our lives, and we must choose to follow our Lord Jesus Christ wherever he leads us.
He Reached Down
An Original Work / February 3, 2014
Based off Psalm 18
How I love You, Lord, my Rock and my strength.
My God is my fortress; I hide in Him.
He is my shield and the horn of
My salvation, whom I praise.
I have found my refuge in Him.
He reached down from heaven and rescued me;
Drew me out of waters so deep, I’d sink.
He delivered me from Satan
And my slavery to sin;
Gave me hope of heaven with Him.
My God turned my darkness into His light;
Opened up my blinded eyes; gave me sight.
As for God, his way is perfect.
He gives strength to stand secure.
I have found my vict’ry in Him.
My Lord lives! Praise be to my Savior God,
Jesus Christ, who died on a cruel cross.
He is my Rock and the source
Of my salvation, whom I trust.
I will give praise always to Him.
