Notice what God was to this King:
A ROCK (vs 2) - Whenever we say someone is a “rock”, we mean he/she is solid, stable, reliable and dependable. You can be assured that God is all these things to us who trust in Him. I like the song that says “…lead me to the Rock that is higher than I…” Are you “rock steady” because your faith is in the One who protects?
A SHELTER (vs3) - Imagine being caught in a storm with no shelter. You are cold, weak and exhausted. Then someone comes to your rescue and provides a shelter from the storm. The Psalmist says that is what God does for us. He provides the strength we need to survive. Is He your Shelter?
A STRONG TOWER (vs3) - In ancient times cities would build towers on the walls around the city. They would have “watchers” to warn of impending danger. God is our Tower and He has warned us of the enemy who is out to destroy us. Make no mistake about it we have an adversary in the devil who will capture us if we are not vigilant. Remember the words of Jesus “…watch and pray for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak…”
A WINGED PROTECTOR (vs4) - The animal world teaches us about the care and protection of a mother/father for its offspring. Jesus used the example of a hen and her chicks. How she gathers her young under her wings. We who trust in God are “under His wings”. What a touching picture of protection.
I hope you are trusting in the One who is all these things and more to His Children.
