Love The Lord

I love you, LORD; you are my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.
Psalms 18:1-2

As King of Israel, David knew conflict. He knew war. He knew what it was like to be outnumbered, to face armies that had superior weapons and others that had giants. David was no stranger to danger. But David also knew God. He trusted in God and depended on Him for his very survival. In this Psalm, David says that God is his strength, rock, fortress, savior, protection, shield, power that saves and place of safety. But even more than knowing God, David loved God. Look how he starts this meditation. “I love you, Lord.” When is the last time you quieted your heart before God, rested in His arms and let Him know that you love Him? You may be facing trials, conflicts and horrific situations. If so, today you can cry out to God and He will indeed be your strength, rock, fortress, savior, protection, shield, power that saves and place of safety. But in the midst of all that is going on in your life, be sure to find time to do what David did. Tell God you love Him.

Dear Father, “I love You.” I just want to stop everything now and say it again, “I love You, Lord.” I commit my life to You today and thank You that You are my strength, rock, fortress, savior, protection, shield, power that saves and place of safety. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
