Psalm 18:1-3 TPT
I Love You, Lord
Praises sung to the Lord by King David
Lord, I passionately love you and I’m bonded to you,[I want to hug you]
for now you’ve become my power!
You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet,
like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress,
my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape,
my tower of rescue where none can reach me.
My secret strength and shield around me,
you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside,
always the champion of my cause.
All I need to do is to call to you,
singing to you, the praiseworthy God.
When I do, I’m safe and sound in you.
As I was reading our passage for today, I smiled because so may times I have asked God to give those I pray for a spiritual hug; an awareness of his presence with them to bring comfort and assurance. But, today, I am filled with joy as I call upon the Lord and tell him how much I love him; I want to give the Lord a spiritual hug! How do we hug God and thank him for his goodness? I believe it is connected with how we praise him and willingly allow the Spirit to guide our lives into abundance. Please give God a hug, today. It will be good for both of you!
Prayer: I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice to worship you; oh my soul rejoice. Take joy my King in what you hear; may it be a sweet sweet sound in your ear! I’m reaching to give you a spiritual hug, Lord. Thank you for your goodness! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
