I Samuel 28-31, Psalm 18
I am having one of those mornings where God seems to be silent as I read His Word. My mind wanders. My eyes fill with tears.
So I will pray back to God His own words from the eighteenth psalm. It’s all I have to offer today.
“I love you, O Lord, my strength.” You are my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer. My God, my rock in whom I take refuge. You are my shield, my salvation, and my stronghold. I call upon You, Lord, because You are worthy to be praised. I am saved from Satan’s hold on me, I am protected from his arrows. You have given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your right hand upholds me. Your gentleness makes me great.
The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock; and exalted be the God of my salvation. (from psalm 18:1-3, 35, 4)
