I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and He maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
The LORD liveth; and blessed be my Rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. (2 Sam. 22:4, 32-34, 47)
David recognized that it was God who gave the victory, whether it was from the relentless pursuit of Saul, the assaults of armies of the nations around him, or the taunts and threats from the Philistine giants. David praised the living God who saved him, blessed the Lord who strengthened David in his battles, and the Almighty who empowered David to do the work of God as king of Israel and His servant. Regardless of what came against David, he knew that he could trust the Lord and if he walked in His ways, victory and salvation would come and God would be glorified for He alone is worthy.
In times of trouble we often cry out to God, and we should, but in times of victory and blessing, we should equally praise our God who gives us the victory. He has defeated death, redeemed us from sin, saved us from wrath, and birthed us anew because of His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. He alone is worthy of our praise and we can sing with David that our LORD liveth and blessed be our Rock. The God who saved us through repentance and faith in Him will also deliver us and bring us through whatever He directs or allows to come our way. He is Sovereign, and He alone is God; our Creator, Redeemer, and King. The LORD who made us and delivered us from sin and now reigns over us, will one day reign over all His creation. He has called, commanded, and commissioned us to reach the lost with His Good News of Salvation, teach all nations whatsoever He has commanded, and preach His Word at all times and in all places, until whosoever will receive Him by trusting in Him unto Salvation has come unto Himself and He is done with us. We praise Him in the victories as He works through us to accomplish His will and do His work in this world.
While we are here, God has sent those of us who are His saints and know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our God has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of God so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of God might have life in His Name.
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. God calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with God, forgiveness from God, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is God the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
