The Promises of God

I am in a season in my life where God is showing His promises of protection, to be true in my life. Psalm 55 is a cry of David's heart when he was hiding from his enemy Saul, and was in fear for his life. "Save me, O God, by Your name: judge and vindicate me by Your mighty strength and power. Hear my pleading and my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth." He expresses his fear by calling out to God in his time of trouble, yet he reminds himself who God is to him, "Behold! God is my helper and ally: the Lord is my upholder...He has delivered me out of every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies." As I go through life, I see the many pitfalls of the enemy and I cry out to God to protect me and like David remember that He is my helper, my upholder & my ally. What great comfort this brings to me in times of fear. Thank You, O God, Jehovah-Sabaoth, 'The Lord of Hosts, The Lord of Armies', my Heavenly Protector!
