The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; he defends me and keeps me safe. Psalms 18:2
Each day challenges turn up, which we must face, but without God it would be impossible to do so, for He gives us security, trust, strength, courage and bravery for us to stand and move forward. For this reason, it is necessary to know who He is and what He represents for our lives. We cannot just say with the mouth but believe from the heart, for it is worth nothing to say “He is great, mighty”, yet in difficult times we see Him neither great nor mighty.
Nor is it about how others see Him but how we see Him. It is not about how He has shown himself to others, but how He has shown himself to us. These experiences will strengthen our spirit, and nothing will make us worry, come what may. For He is and will be our Liberator, shield […] and the One who keeps us safe.
This makes it clear that the courage, the strength and the bravery of David were the result of that which God meant for his life, which made him strong and mighty. For he knew that He would not separate from him or leave him on his own, but He would defend him from his enemies because He was his Protector.
