Fortress

2i

David spoke the words of this song to the Lord on the day the Lord rescued him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.  He said:

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer,

my God, my mountain where I seek refuge.

My shield, the horn of my salvation,

my stronghold, my refuge,

and my Savior,

You save me from violence.

I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,

and I was saved from my enemies.

For the waves of death engulfed me;

the torrents of destruction terrified me.

The ropes of Sheol entangled me;

the snares of death confronted me.

I called to the Lord in my distress;

I called to my God.

From His temple He heard my voice,

and my cry for help reached His ears.

2 Samuel 22:1-7

David went on with his song of thanks to the Lord for 51 verses, that’s just the first 7 🙂

When we accept God’s offer of forgiveness of sin, the Holy Spirit then indwells us.  Jesus promises to never leave you (Hebrews 13:5), so the new relationship is permanent.  What Jesus did on the cross God fully accepted as payment for all of man’s sin.  In addition to that, Christ also promised that no one can ever take us from Him (John 10:28).  So, this means that we can be confident that we are God’s children forever.  That’s true security.
