Daily Bible Reading & Devotion -- Psalm 18

Good Morning!

November 26, 2009
Psalm 18

This chapter is filled with visions of salvation. The need for salvation arises because we have so many ups and downs in our lives, and we have a great need for stability. David, a man of war, finds himself in many difficult situations that he can't find a way out of. Rather than give up he always turns to his true source of strength and victory - God!

Too often we constantly rely on ourselves, and never give God the chance to save us! We are so self reliant, proud and independent that we will not accept assistance from anyone or anywhere.

Jesus is a God who cares about you, your live, your situations and your problems. He is as close as the mention of His name! Don't ever be afraid to call on Him for help, or on any one of His true followers! No one is ever completely independent from everyone else!

David a man of great military expertise and experience need help quite often, and he always called on God. As note in our chapter today, David made reference to the fact that God gave him strength to jump over a wall, and when completely surrounded he found the strength to run through a whole troupe or battalion of soldiers!

Jesus - The Horn of Our Salvation - is never far away! Stay faithful, true, righteous, upright and merciful and you will find the He is very willing to defend you. However, if you tend to be a bit on the froward, selfish, not God fearing, unteachable side of things then you may find that God is a bit more like the awesome, terrible descriptions that can be found.

Call on Jesus He's right there!
