Count The Ways

I love you, Lord; you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise.
Psalm 18:1-3

How we look at a situation makes all the difference in the world. Here was David in the midst of war. He is in an awful situation. Listen to what he writes, “The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me. The grave wrapped its ropes around me; death laid a trap in my path.” However, there was one thing that made all the difference. David continues, “But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.” David had a great faith in a greater God. No wonder he starts off the Psalm with, “I love you, Lord.” And like the famous poem, you can hear him say, “Let me count the ways.” And sure enough, he lists one attribute of God after another. Today, stop, count the ways. Is He your strength, your rock, your fortress, your savior, your shield, your power, and your place of safety? He wants to be. Count all of the Lord’s goodness to you. He is worthy of your praise.

Father God, truly You are worthy of all my praise! You are my rock, fortress, shield, protector, provider, power and Savior. You are God almighty and I honor and praise you. In Jesus’ name.
