Psalm 18:1-3

I love you, God—
you make me strong.
God is bedrock under my feet,
the castle in which I live,
my rescuing knight.

My God—
high crag where I run for dear life,

hiding behind the boulders,
safe in the granite hideout.

I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty,

and find myself safe and saved.

Psalm 18:1-3 (The Message)

This is one of my favorite Psalms, and it’s new and fresh to me in this version from the Message. May the Lord bless you as He is these things to you, my friends.

Happy Sunday…
