The LORD Is My Strength

The LORD Is My Strength

King David faced many challenges  with wicked people  —  just like we do today.     So David prayed  with all his might  that he would never, ever become  like the wicked people.      He was appalled at how they would pretend  to be peaceful,  while their whole intent was  to do evil underhandedly.

David pointed out the reason  for their deceitfulness.     In Psalm 28:5,  David said they acted that way,

Because they do not regard  the works  of the LORD

Nor the deeds  of His hands.

So today,  those who have no respect or “regard”  for all that God has done  in creation  and in keeping His promises  of salvation  still keep on being deceitful  and evil  in their ways.

In having many such people around him,  King David did not cave in  to their evil ways  or let himself lose faith  because of their onslaughts.     In Psalm 28:7,  David joyfully confessed,

The LORD is my strength  and my shield;

My heart trusts  in Him,  and I am helped;

Therefore  my heart exults,

And with my song  I shall thank Him.

We, too,  need to know  that the LORD  is our “strength”  and our “shield”.     God is merciful  and faithful,  so we can surely trust Him  and allow Him  to help us  in the way that is best  in the end.     We can  and should  let our hearts exult  in God’s love  for us.     Everyone really needs to “thank”  the LORD with songs  and praises.

Placing our trust  and salvation  in the LORD’s hands,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for staying by our side  throughout our whole lives,  to protect and lead us.”

Love,
