Psalm 18:2  The LORD is… the horn of my salvation…

As we continue in this powerful study of Psalm 18:2, we arrive to the place where the Psalmist gives the Lord praise for being the horn of salvation. This is the horn of an animal. It was used for numerous things, of which all can be used to relate to the authority of our Lord. These horns came from an animal that had died. This type horn would be one of an animal that has horns that are cone shaped and were hollow. These horns were used for making music. Mostly music of the command for battle. This is the same type horn used to blow the shofar. Are you excited yet?? These horns were also used to contain olive oil for anointing. Each end would have a plug to seal the oil inside. The small end plug was made removable so that the oil would be easily accessible. Shepherds carried these horns of oil to anoint the sheep’s head. This would repel the pest that would worry the sheep. These horns were also used for protection. Not only were they the main source of protection for the animal itself, but the people used them to make hand held weapons. These weapons were for battling their enemies. And then also, these horns were the horns mounted to the corners of the altar in the temple of God. These horns had great meaning of power, protection, praise and perseverance! Oh my dear friend, no wonder the Psalmist said the Lord is the horn of my salvation. Yes, of salvation! He is the authority of our salvation. The Lamb died that the horn would be provided! The horn is the symbol of the power of our salvation! It is the symbol of the protection of our salvation! The horn is the symbol of the anointed praise of salvation! Yes! And the horn symbolizes our ability to persevere this battle. The battle has been won on the Cross of Calvary. We are not marching to victory but rather from victory! Hallelujah! The Lord is the horn of my salvation!! Amen!

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is… my high tower.

What a wonderful study we have enjoyed here in Psalm 18:2. We struck it rich with our findings of many nuggets of wisdom and encouragement. It is packed full of the spoken words of God. It is our bank of much needed knowledge for life’s decisions. As we wrap this verse up, we find yet one more shiny nugget of glory about our Lord. He is our “high tower”. This word means a high cliff or a place of altitude, a place of refuge. I really love to visit places with a great view. When you step into view of a high place that allows you to see many miles, it is always breathtaking. Usually the first sound from our mouth is wow. It is so mindboggling. Why? Because we humans can normally only view a short distance in front of us due to our natural stature. Most people have at least some level of fear when they are extremely high atop something. It is because our natural place is not above it all. Notice our verse reminds us that the Lord is our high tower. He is high above the earth watching over His people. He has the God’s view of it all. He is our all-knowing God because He is the all-seeing God. He sees all at all times. Nothing happens that He is not aware of. What a comfort to know our Lord is ever seeing us. It is comforting to know He sees us in our jams and in our times of need. He sees when we need to be rescued from danger and when we need to be provided for in times of lacking. But… He also sees when we are not being the obedient child we should be. So, our knowledge of His all-seeing ability should not only comfort us but it should convict us. When our backslidden condition is swaying us from the comforting communion with the Lord, we must be aware that His eye is upon His children at all times. We will not go free of correction from the Lord. He is high upon the cliff of life viewing the happenings in our lives. Ps. 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy. Ps. 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. What a comfort to know His sovereign sight is upon us 24-7. But oh how humbling to know our sin is also before His recordings. Dear friend, we must live our lives daily with the stirred reminder that the Lord sees all.Ps. 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Amen.

Proverbs 16:6  By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

The true child of God has a built-in conviction to want to do right. We might not always do what is right, but we have the desire within our soul to do right in the eyes of God. Our carnal flesh tends to push us in the direction of rebellion. Our verse for today gives us direction in this matter. How can we have more strength to rebuke evil and not allow rebellion to control us? As a child of God, I truly want to do right. I want to please the Lord. I do not wish to live in and partake of sin. But I need some type strength that is stronger than me. Good news my friend! The Lord gives us a bit of direction here in this verse that will help us live cleaner and more righteous. “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged”. Thank God for mercy!!! It is God’s mercy on us that keeps us from being completely swallowed by sin. The only thing that is between us and sure judgment is God’s mercy. He is a merciful Father. Thank you Lord! So, we see that the Lord is doing His part, but are we doing our part? Secondly our verse tells us that truth also keeps us from sin. What is truth? What is real true truth that is not tarnished or tampered? John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. The Word of God is true truth. If we wish for iniquity to be far from us and if we desire to live a cleaner daily life, we must get in the Word. Reading the Word and studying the Word will give us strength beyond our human ability. Just the presence of the Word has power. When we put it in us, it empowers us to rebuke sin rather than embrace it. Pro. 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. The Word will not only cleanse us, but it will shield us from evil. Why do we pay an exterminator to treat our home for termites? It is because we know if termites move in they will do great damage to our home. Therefore, the exterminator sprays a barrier around our home. The termites will not cross this barrier. My friend, the Word of God spiritually does this for us. It builds a barrier against iniquity. And referring to the last part of our verse; the Word of God will create a great respect and reverence within our heart, mind, soul and spirit. Get in the Word! It is strength and protection for our daily walk. Amen

Proverbs 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

We are living in days of much vanity.  Here in the United States of America, we came out of WWII and our country’s economy began to boom.  It was a great relief to the generation that had just came through the struggles of the great depression.  It was during that struggling time that most of the population of this country almost starved to death.  They had no money and therefore no medical care, and few supplies for daily living.  It weighed heavy on them mentally as they exited such a hard time.  Then exiting one of the hardest world wars the economy was better than ever.  A good salary could be earned.  The average household had a car or two.  Food was in the pantry.  Medical care was available.  And many began to place more emphasis on making money rather than on the God who had pulled them out of this depression.  They began to work in place of worship.  Never before would they have worked on worship day.  Never before would they have put the world before God.  But success began to blind America.  During the hard years, America had some of the most powerful revivals in history.  Why?  Because God was their everything.  Without God they were doomed.  Now here we are in 2020.  The average home is an extravagant castle compared to the 1920s.  Most families have 3-4 cars.  Many are earning a fortune but spend it before they get it.  Toys fill the carports and storage sheds.  Sundays are holidays for play and travel.  Wednesday evenings are just another day.  We don’t need a God.  We are our own God.  We don’t have time to serve.  We must earn more money.  Our children raise themselves on the couch eating cereal and watching TV.  When the pressure is too much, we turn to drugs to dim the mind.  Wicked living is accepted as a birth condition.  Crime is the lace of society.  Oh my friend, America is in big trouble.  We have forgotten God.  Most of the population thinks church is a big entertainment rally of contemporary fun.  Most have traded the true Word for a feel good book.  My dear friend, God is still God.  Salvation is still by the shed blood of Christ.  The old KJ Bible is still the pure Word written in English.  And the old paths are still the only rest for the soul (Jer. 6:16).  Don’t allow financial to replace your faith!  Refuse to put work before worship.  Don’t replace the power of God with the pleasures of the world.  One day soon, He’s coming!  The trump of God shall sound and the dead in Christ shall rise and then those of us who are saved will join them in the air!  And so shall we ever be with the Lord!  Yes, the Word of God still stands true.  Life as this world knows it is about to come to a screeching halt.  My friend, it is good to be right with God!  Are you right with God??  Have you stepped out on Him?  Are you putting temporary pleasures before serving Him?   There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  Amen.

Psalm 9:7  But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

As we operate in this world, we experience success and failure.  When we succeed, we are always thinking about the failure.  No one enjoys failure.  It is always in the back of our mind that failure is lurking in the shadows.  But as a child of God we can be assured that failure in not final.  That is one of the victorious benefits of being in the family of God, failure is never final.  This is because we serve the God that never fails.  He has never made a mistake nor has His plan ever had to be adjusted.  We as humans are continually readjusting and revamping.  But not the Lord, His plan is set.  He has a plan and it is and will come together.  I must remind us that our God is Lord!  He is The God of gods and The Lord of lords.  This world has many gods, but the Lord is THE Lord.  This world is His.  Every valley and mountain is His.  Every plain is His.  Every creature is His.  It’s all His.  He spoke it all into existence and He will pull the cord when He is finished with it.  The environmentalists are fighting a lost cause.  The tree hugger is wasting valuable time trying to save a world that is operating on a stopwatch.  This is a temporal world.  Living here we experience things coming and going.  People come and go.  Leaders come and go.  And we too came and we will go.  It is important that we know where we will go.  Either we will go to eternal judgment or we will go to eternal paradise with the Lord.  The only escape is with the Lord.  He is THE LORD over all.  All is in His hand of control.  He is the only God that will endure forever.  All others will be thrown from their thrones.  The Lord Jesus Christ has a sovereign plan and it will be carried out perfectly without adjustment.  Dear friend, as a saved child of God we are on the won side.  We are living in unfailing victory.  When the dust settles, we will be standing with the great victor!  It may look and feel like we are losing the battle here, but the battle has already been won.  He is King and He is on the eternal throne.  He will and again I say, He Will judge this world in the end.  Oh glory, it is good to be a born again child of God!  Saved to the uttermost and I know that I am… washed in the blood of the precious Lamb.  What a wonderful encouragement it is today to know we are safe in the sovereign, eternal arms of THE God.  Amen!  

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
