“The Lord is the strength of His people, a fortress of salvation for His anointed one.” – Psalm 28:8
When we commit our heart to God, He becomes our saving fortress. He considers us anointed, and will be our source of strength.
As we come and commit our whole heart to Him, He sees us through the shield of His Son, and considers us sacred; set apart to serve Him. The very idea of being set apart to serve our Savior would be all too overwhelming on its own. However, when we come to realize that this calling is not to be carried out in our own strength, but in His, the perception of our projected path becomes less daunting. He is a fortress we can run to, that is mighty with impenetrable walls. He saves us from ourselves, and grants us strength to stretch with each new step.
In my own existence, this is essential. I am looking over the ledge, and being led to leap. He is not asking me to pack my parachute or don a squirrel suit, rather He is calling me only to trust Him to keep me safe and enjoy the ride…
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our strength and safety. Thank You that You have set us apart so that we might serve You – not in our own strength, but in Yours. May we be ever aware of our security in Your strength as we leap from the ledges to which You lead us. Amen.
