Text: Psalm 16-18
Psalm 18 is a favorite of mine. The Lord is my rock and my fortress. He is the place that is always solid, never moves, and is safe, safe, safe. I love the imagery that is used in this Psalm. When destruction threatens one of God’s beloved, as soon as the cry goes to Him for help, the Lord responds.
He bowed the heavens and came down;thick darkness was under his feet. (Psalm 18:9)
He moves, and things happen. Scary things. The earth reels and rocks, smoke comes from the LORD’s nostrils, devouring fire from His mouth. He rides a winged angel down and the heavens part – clouds and dark, brightness and hail, thunder, arrows, lightning. Then, God swoops down and rescues. Imagine – when you or I pray for help, the LORD in fury and speed answers – and He will come and He will rescue. So… if anything is threatening to you, call out to Him, expecting a powerful response. Amen.
in Him, Mike
