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.
