“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way. I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. They cried for help, but there was no one to save them— to the LORD, but he did not answer. I beat them as fine as windblown dust; I trampled them like mud in the streets.” Psalm 18:30-42
One of the things we want to remember as we study the Psalms is that they are songs. They come from hearts of praise and worship for what God has done and for who He is.
Music imprints information deep within us. Something happens when we sing.
This psalm credits God for the victories that David has seen. He knows that he is nothing without God’s mighty hand at work in his life. He knows that his enemies fell because God equipped him and moved before him.
What would our lives look like if we continually gave God the credit for the victories in our lives? What would we feel if our hearts were filled with praise as we recognized His power and might? What would it do to impact our culture if we lived in worship?
What would our lives look like if we remembered that He is the One who set our feet on the Rock?
Lord, I am so grateful that You are my Rock. No matter what is going on around me, I can praise You and trust that I am in a safe place.
