“Lord, I passionately love you and I’m bonded to you, for now you’ve become my power. You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet, like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress, my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape, my tower of rescue where none can reach me. My secret strength and my shield around me, you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside, always the champion of my cause. All I need to do is call to you, singing to you the praiseworthy God. When I do I’m safe and sound in you. For when the ropes of death wrapped around me and terrifying torrents of destruction overwhelmed me, taking me to death’s door, to doom’s domain. I cried out to you in my distress, the delivering God, and from your temple throne you heard my troubled cry. My sobs came right into your heart and you turned your face to rescue me.”Psalm 18:1-6 TPT The Passion Translation
“He then reached down from heaven, all the way from sky to sea. He reached down into my darkness to reacue me. He took me out of my calamity and chaos and drew me to himself, taking me from the depths of my despair.”Psalm 18:18 TPT The Passion Translation
Oh mighty God we thank you that you are our way of escape and rescue. We thank you that our cries come right into your heart and you personally make a plan for our escape, taking us out of the depths of our calamity. We worship you.
