What is the Lord to you? What kind of pictures would you draw of Him, showing His preciousness to you? Listen to David as he spoke of what the Lord meant to him, and then how he applied it,

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.
(Psalm 18.2–3) 

To David, the Lord was his rock, fortress, deliverer, strength, shield, horn of salvation, and stronghold. That being the case, David would call upon the Lord when in trouble.

Questions:

  • What is the Lord to you?
  • Does it become obvious when you run into trouble?
