Day 34, February 3 - Psalm 18

Click here to go to today's reading

This is another great Psalm to read when you feel under attack. The Psalmist starts by acknowledging that God is his strength, rock, fortress, deliverer and so much more. In verse 6 he writes "In my distress I called upon the Lord..."

This is a good reminder that we need to remind ourselves of God's attributes because when we do we remember just how big He is and that when we call on Him in our distress He is big enough to take care of it.

God is faithful in the darkest of times.


  1. 7 Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked, because he was angry. 8 Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him. 9 He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under his feet. 10 He rode on a cherub and flew; he came swiftly on the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him, thick clouds dark with water. 12 Out of the brightness before him hailstones and coals of fire broke through his clouds.

    I absolutely love this imagery. Awesome.

  2. Psalm 18
    1-2 I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my Savior, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the strength of my salvation, my stronghold.

    30 God’s way is perfect! The promise of the Lord has proven to be true. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him.

    46 The Lord lives! Thanks be to my rock! May God my Savior be honored.
