He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:17-19 (NIV)

Have you ever felt like you are faced with enemies too powerful to overcome? Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of overpowering circumstances and feel like there is nowhere to turn with no one to help. These scriptures remind us that even when we are confronted with disasters and powerful foes, beneath our shaking knees and unsteady feet we have the unshakable strength and support of the all powerful Almighty God, King of kings and Lord of lords. Oh, how wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father delights in you and me! He rescues us from captivity and bring us out into the freedom of open spaces with new opportunities. Whatever we face today or tomorrow we must not forget to rejoice in the truth that the Lord delights in us and will always be our strength, our deliverer, and Savior. All glory, honor and praise to our God!
