My loving God, my fortress, my stronghold, my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues, under me, those who are hostile against me. Don’t you love how many times that David makes this verse so personal? He was able to do this because of His personal relationship with a covenant keeping God?
“He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.” ~ Psalm 144:2
First of all, the Psalmist describes God as a loving God, a God who cares, a God who wants the best for you, a God who will never let go of you, a God who wants to bless you with all that He can muster.
God wants you to know His peace, His protection, His provision and His power. He wants you to know Him as your Deliverer and the One who is your all Sufficient One. The Bible says in Psalm 54:7. “You have delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.” Once again, we see another Divine promise from God to not only be your Deliverer, but also give you complete victory over your foes, while showing Himself strong on your behalf.
My friends, our passage for today is taken from the latter part of King David’s life in which He testifies to the faithfulness and awesome power of God. This same God who subdued David’s enemies, who delivered him from all his troubles and gave him one magnificent victory after another, will do the same for you.

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
