1. The Lord takes care of those who belong to Him. “I love you, O Lord, my strength,” begins the psalmist. God is our stronghold in every situation! We are not our own strength! Verses 25 and 26a say about God, “With the kind You show Yourself kind; With the blameless You show Yourself blameless; With the pure You show Yourself pure…”
For who is God, but the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God,
The God who girds me with strength
And makes my way blameless?
2. God will bring down our enemies and help us to defeat that which is in opposition to His word: “I pursued my enemies and overtook them, and I did not turn back until they were consumed. I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; they fell under my feet. For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.” Verses 37-39
3. God gives us strength! Verse 29 is what we are memorizing with Will right now: “For by You I can run upon a troop; and by my God I can leap over a wall.” He thinks that is pretty amazing!
