Psalm 18:2 "The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."

Psalm 18:3 "I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised"

Psalm 18 tells us God is a sovereign savior. Will we call upon Him? We are told to cast our cares on Him – for He cares for us. Psalm 18 reveals how convinced King David has become that he has the Mighty One looking after Him. Because of this, David says he will love Him, and call upon Him. David recounts his feeling helpless, but crying out to God who heard his voice in His temple. David says God “thundered from heaven” and took action to help him - He sent from above. He says he was rewarded because he had not departed from his God, or put God’s Word away from him. Do we realize often enough that we are righteous in God’s sight as we humbly trust in Jesus? He supports us because we trust in Jesus and cry out to our Father. Let Him deliver you today from your stress. May we cry out - “may the God of my salvation be exalted!”.
