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.
I felt the need to encourage us to depend on God as He is dependable and faithful to all that He promises and removes any doubt of why we should depend on Him. Our lesson text uses a list of metaphors describing God's ability to defend, protect and deliver His people especially in the time of trouble as He delivered all believers from the darkness of sin and eternal damnation through His Son Jesus. God will protect and defend His people from the physical and spiritual forces that we encounter.
We depend on God because He is our shepherd providing for all our needs as He has dispatched His goodness and mercy angels around us who will be with us forever (Psalm 23). We depend on God as we recognized Him for who He is and His awesome powers. We depend on God as He is the one true living God who reign supreme to all others gods of the universe. Our God has no beginning or ending. We depend on God because He is triune in that He exists as One God operating in three distinct persons, God the Father, God the Son Jesus Christ who died for the sins of the world and God the Holy Spirit who dwells in every believer. Lastly, we depend on God because He has proven Himself trustworthy and faithful to His promises.
There is no God like the God of the universe; depend on Him.
