O my Strength, I will watch for you, for you, O God, are my fortress.
My God in his steadfast love will meet me; …O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress,the God who shows me steadfast love. Psalm 59:9,10,17
I love how David here refers to God as his Strength. He doesn’t just mention that God is strong, but this attribute becomes his identity. Are you seeing God this way? In the midst of the current pressures of your work and family, O God my Strength. In the wake of yet another shooting and more bloodshed in our country, O God my Strength. Faced with the looming prospect of lonely holidays, O God my Strength. And furthermore our Strength meets and enfolds us in his steadfast love. No wonder David sings his praises.
So we press on. Not in our strength but in the Lord, our Strength. This was very much the mindset of young David as he went out to face the giant, Goliath. Pastor Steve will continue our Advent look at the life of David and great David’s greater Son by revisiting this story in I Samuel 17.
