I Shall Not Be Moved

"I shall not, I shall not be moved
I shall not, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
I shall not be moved."

Psalms 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, (just as the enemy has many ways to attach, God has many ways to defend) F44 in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Life has taught us, the enemy uses countless ways to levy an attack. An approach can come from the most secreted and even personal avenues in your life to the most obvious. Life has also taught us, God has countless ways to levy a defense against those sordid attacks. If only by our faith, like David we would trust God to fight our battles. In this verse David is so overwhelmed in his zeal he can only express his desire to trust in God by calling him names that fit his needs.

David refers to God as “strength,” “foundation,” “place of safety,” “fountain,” “deliverer,” “my strong God,” “defender,” and “horn of my salvation.” David knew and believed that in God, every angle of attack was covered by all, but one in the same . . . God.

When our car needs repair, do we take it to a grocery store? No we take it to a mechanic, a specialist, a dealer. When we are hungry, do we go to the news stand? No, we go to a restaurant, a fast food joint; our refrigerator. When our lives are faced with spiritual attacks, do we go to our bosses? No we go to God, the healer, the strong tower, the Boss! Believe this . . . David didn’t have confidence in God because he heard God was a deliverer. David believed in God because God had proven himself daily and through generations. God still proves himself to us and has proven himself through generations. Now we must trust and believe him for all he has promised us.

When we take that step and refuse to come down off the wall; when we stand when the enemy says run; when we hold onto our faith when everything around us is falling; we too will be able to cry out all those names David cried out in praise.
