“Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.” Psalm 18:8
Again, David turns to the power of God, but this time reveals the Lord coming to his rescue. David knew God as the deliverer, and the astonishing truth is God continues to rescue His children. His hand is upon us, and His eyes do not close.
Like David, we need to be ever present asking for His intervention. David knew God as all-powerful and was not intimidated by his surroundings even if all were falling around him. God isn’t asking us to buck up and be stronger. He isn’t sitting in heaven and saying we need to figure it all out. He desires to be involved.
How do we see God in our midst? Think of the worst situation in life right now and ask, “Is God in it”? Is He more powerful than what we are seeing? When our mind is convinced that God is all powerful, we can walk through the deepest waters and keep our heads above water. We are not drowning in life’s persecutions, because praise is keeping us from sinking our hearts in despair. Joy keeps our focus on who God is, and when He is all powerful, then we know He is our strength.
