I Will Call Upon The Lord

We serve such an Awesome God!

I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3

Psalm 18 is a such a special psalm because you will find it in 2 places in the Bible. It is here in the Book of Psalms. It is also in the Book of 2 Samuel. 2 Samuel tells us the story of David after he became king.

I Love how this Psalm begins; “I love you” this is such a beautiful intimate proclamation from an earthly king spoken to the heavenly King who rescued him from his enemies.  Our Lord is a fortress for protection, delivery, safety, refuge, and strength. All attributes of the God who loves us and draws us to himself.  He is worthy of Praise, He is worthy of Trust, He is our Strength in times of trouble and He wants to deliver us ALL. Hallelujah

Blessed be the name of the LORD.

God answered David’s prayer because He delights in His worshipers.

Let these verses be an encouragement for you today, knowing, He wants to deliver you from your enemies, enlighten you in your darkness, reward you, strengthen you, make your way perfect, lift you up, and show you mercy. Blessed be the name of the LORD.!

Walk today in the knowledge that our God saves, redeems and restores.

My name is Cheryl Cooper, I have been a survivor of childhood sexual and a victim of a stalker and sexual assault at 15. I endured a painful divorce in 2015. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has also blessed me abundantly with 3 beautiful grown and married adult children.
