Psalm 18:1-2
1 I love you, Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

This is brash powerful imagery. Listen again to the descriptions: strength, rock, fortress, deliverer, refuge, shield, horn, stronghold. These words speak of permanence, stubborn resistance, and perfect protection. Like a stark silhouette of a mountain forcefully standing out on the horizon, God stands firm and stands for us. He will not be shaken. In him we are secure.

Lord, thank you that you are always there for us, help us to make you our foundation and strength.
