Our Tower of Salvation
He isthe tower of salvation to His king, and shows mercy to His anointed,
to David and his descendants forevermore.” - >2 Samuel 22:51
Imagine, in one complete sentence, David spoke so clearly of his personal relationship with God. Look how David, in praise, had a strong sense of belonging to His king, His anointed…His God was a strong tower, a fortress for King David to escape to. The Lord’s mercy was shown to David; he had an enduring hope that His mercy would extend beyond himself to his descendants forever.
Notice again, the humble heart of David; he had come to the end of his days, never thinking of himself to be anything great. He continued to pursue God and make sure he was right in the sight of God, before he would leave this earth. The tremendous life of David should challenge us to become prayer warriors and true worshipers of the Lord.
We do not know when we shall leave this earth, but may the Lord help us to examine our lives in the days we have remaining. Do we spend devoted time with God and speak more about Him, than we do of ourselves? Do we give Him all the honor, glory and praise due His name?
Imagine, the Lord listens to all our conversations––to those who fear Him; He keeps a detailed record of what we say:
Then those who feared the Lordspoke to one another, and the Lordlistened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name - (Malachi 3:16).
The name of the Lordis a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
