“The LORD is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.”
‘He has become my salvation.’ This Lord, who is at once Father, Son and Holy Spirit is not one who merely watches from a distance but is the God who has come to us – to seek us, find us, help us and lead us home through His awesome death and resurrection. Everything promised and prophesied in the Bible has found its truth and completion in the Lord Jesus – and through the Cross.
He has sought, called and embraced each one of His beloved in His eternal love. Once we have given ourselves back to Him no one and nothing can ever separate us.
• “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
• “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
• “To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy– to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” (Jude 1:24-25)
He is my strength for life and for living.
He is my song of delight and of witness.
He is my present and my eternal salvation.
He is my Lord, my King and my God – and my great Love.
I love you, O Lord ..
my strength, my song
and my salvation.
Learn it – reflect on it – sing it
Thank You Lord – so very much. Amen.
