Psalm 18:18 (TPT) When I was at my weakest, my enemies attacked— but the Lord held on to me.
Beloved, when you give yourself to Me, I hold you fast and don’t let go. Resist the urge to presume if I haven’t moved in the way you desire that I’m unable or unwilling. Instead trust Me, and look to see where My hand is at work, for it surely is.
I AM a good father, and fiercely protective of My children. My love for you is so great that it cannot be measured. It cannot even be fathomed. So do you think I’d turn a blind eye to your circumstances, or a deaf ear to your cries? Surely not. Hold tight, beloved, and hide beneath the shadow of My wing.
Psalm 18:12-19 (TPT) Suddenly the brilliance of his presence broke through with lightning bolts and with a mighty storm from heaven— like a tempest dropping coals of fire. The Lord thundered, the great God above every god spoke with his thunder-voice from the skies. What fearsome hailstones and flashes of fire were before him! He released his lightning-arrows, and routed my foes. See how they ran and scattered in fear! Then with his mighty roar he laid bare the foundations of the earth, uncovering the secret source of the sea. The hidden depths of land and sea were exposed by the hurricane-blast of his hot breath. He then reached down from heaven, all the way from the sky to the sea. He reached down into my darkness to rescue me! He took me out of my calamity and chaos and drew me to himself, taking me from the depths of my despair! Even though I was helpless in the hands of my hateful, strong enemy, you were good to deliver me. When I was at my weakest, my enemies attacked— but the Lord held on to me. His love broke open the way and he brought me into a beautiful broad place. He rescued me—because his delight is in me!
