For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord. He sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:
I love you, Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1
My strength when I am weak.
My strength when I feel strong.
My strength when I can’t go on any longer.
My strength when I can go the distance.
My strength when my eyes fail me.
My strength when I have 20/20 vision.
My strength in the storm.
My strength in the bright sunshine.
My strength when I am needy.
My strength when I need nothing.
The paradox of these statements is that we know clearly when we need His strength. It’s the times we think we don’t need that strength that we need it the most, for when we rely on our own strength, we’re doomed to fail.
I love you, Lord, my strength.
