God Is My Defense

From this morning's Daily Light:

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; the God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior. # The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him.

When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. # We may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. # Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.

For your name's sake, lead me and guide me.

(Ps. 59:9; 2 Sam. 22:2-3; Ps. 28:7; Isa. 59:19; Heb. 13:6; Ps. 27:1; Ps. 125:2; Ps. 63:7; Ps. 31:3)
