Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Deut 6:5
Psalms 18:1 I love you, Lord, my strength.
Have u ever been overwhelmed by someone's love. Maybe the love of a child or someone that just flat out outloved u and it made u love them more? That's how David is feeling here in psalms. He has been delivered from the hand of Saul and is crying out to the Lord with an inspired love song. While he was singing he knew about his past with all of his missteps along the way but the Lord was protecting him still, loving him still. He knew that he had worry and anxiety about Saul but he was finding his strength in the Lord.
So it is with us. When we have a love song Sho nuff that we can pull up to remind not only God but ourselves how we love him because it is clear he has been loving us all along. For me it’s Reckless Love. Even we were not thinking about him. He is raising the standard coming after me! Even when we didn't even know he was protecting us from something until it all unfolded. Even when we have our minds made up like the little engine that could that "I'm not going to worry, I'm not going to stress" (that doesn't work by the way) we have to turn worry into worship. We have to turn stress into praise. We have to flip the script and Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength! Because that's when he comes through like a boss and u can sincerely sing “I don’t deserve it, I couldn’t earn it, still u give urself away.
That's what I heard. Be encouraged today. Don't worry, but worship him! Love on him!
