the purpose of man is to know God and enjoy him forever.
how can we know him? how can we enjoy him unless we know his character?
by reading what he wrote about himself through those divinely chosen and inspired to share about their relationship, experiences with him…
this is what david shared about his relationship with God: “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. i call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and i am saved from my enemies.” – Psalm 18:2-3
on this dreary february fourth, this devotional reading explains the second verse of the psalm in more poignant detail: “ROCK – a picture of stability and security; FORTRESS – a place of refuge to run for defense and protection; DELIVERER – one who is mighty and powerful enough to rescue you from everything; GOD – everything i will ever need, my all in all; STRENGTH – a firm support to give continual confidence; BUCKLER – a shield to protect me from the blows of the enemy; HORN of salvation – another picture of strength, with emphasis on God’s power and might; HIGH TOWER – a place to flee from the snares on earth. who can be afraid with Someone like that by her side?” – Be Still, My Child by Juanita Purcell
may we know him and trust him. because truth breeds trust.
