Just a Thought for October 13October 13, 2015
David knew two important things about God that we will do well to remember as well. The Lord is our strength and our redeemer. The King James only uses the word redeemer in the Old Testament.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14 NKJV).
Throughout the Psalms, David acknowledged that his strength was from the Lord. He knew he could not go into battle in his own strength because apart for God he had not strength.
We too know that our strength is from the Lord. In Him we can do the impossible. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV).
We know Jesus is our redeemer. He paid the price for our sins with His death on the Cross. “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7 KJV).
Jesus is our strength and our redeemer. As We look to Him alone, we receive our daily strength and the benefits of our redemption.
