“But I will sing of Your power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in
the morning: for You have been my defense and
refuge in the day of my trouble.”
Again, we see David’s theme of God’s deliverance in his life, His continued protection and defense. He declares that God has been his defense daily and his refuge whenever he encountered trouble. Even in the midst of King Saul sending men to watch David’s house in order to kill him, David strengthened himself in the Lord.
He proclaimed God’s protection over his life because he took refuge in his God who had been and would always be faithful. His stand of faith gained greater strength and depth in his life as he sang praises to God for what He was doing and would do.
We’ve mentioned it before that praise goes before a battle. If you’re in a tight spot right now; if you’re in the middle of a mess, find your refuge first in God’s presence, in the Word; and then begin to declare what the Word says. Declare who your God is. Don’t declare your problem. Declare who your God is. Make His name BIG in your midst. Your song will become louder and the works of the enemy against you will come up short and fall back.
You are more than a conqueror through Christ because He loves you, and is IN you. Rise up and sing of His power and watch your situation change.
