Verse Of The Day : I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies – 2 Samuel 22: 4 (UKJV).
LISTEN : The LORD gave us an invitation to ask when he said, ” Call to me and I will answer you, and will show you great and hidden things, which you do not know ( Jeremiah 33 : 3 ). There’re things that happens to us sometimes which we can’t explain, only God can give us access to their meanings and intents. Besides, we can’t gain access to those information until we call to God. In Deuteronomy 29: 29, the bible says, ” Secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those that are revealed belongs to us and our descendents forever…” God said, Call to me and I will answer you”. Beloved, have you called to him? Many don’t know how to call to God, that is, pray to Him; they prefer keeping their challenges to themselves or tell them to friends. Yes, friends may help you sometimes, but their help is limited.
David in today’s verse rendered a prayer and song of confidence in the unfailing power of God Almighty even in the midst of his challenges, and he said, ” I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies( 2 Samuel 22 : 4 ). Truly he was saved from his enemies – King Saul, the Philistines, Absalom his son and many others. The particulars of David’s prayer are: 1. I have a God to call in my troubles. 2. He loves praises and so I will render to him no matter what. 3. I’m certain of my deliverance from my enemies with his help.
Like David, let’s trust the Lord with our challenges, praise him no matter what, and enjoy his deliverance from our enemies.
Invest quality time in prayer and don’t allow anything hinder you. Always trust the Lord to deliver you.
Almighty God, I thank you because you answer prayers, deliver me from my known and unknown enemies, oppose their plans over my life, in Jesus ‘ name, amen.
Reflection : God who promised deliverance to you can give it to you.
Prophetic Word : I decree upon your life today, deliverance from your enemies. Every trap that is set for you will not catch you. Like David, you’ll be saved from your enemies and you’ll praise the Lord, in Jesus ‘ name, amen.
