I love You, O LORD, my strength.
(Psalm 18:1 MEV)
After watching God come through for him during a hard time in his life, the Psalmist begins his song with the only words one could find to say to such a great Deliverer, “I love You, O LORD, my strength.” And let me tell you, when God strengthens you during the most difficult times in your life, you, too, will be able to truly say, as the Psalmist did, “I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
When someone goes out of their way to show their love for you, the only right response would be to love them back in return. Not out of sense of obligation, but of trust. The Psalmist wasn’t forced to love God, he grew to love God. And I speak from experience when I say that our love for God will only grow more when we see Him at work in our lives more, especially when times are tough. Because many will be there when all is well, but very few will stick around when your world comes crashing down. And in the end, you will discover that the reason you pulled through was because of the power of His love for you.
