When David wrote this Psalm, he was at the stage of his life where he had seen and experienced the Lord literally saving his life from ruthless enemies. There was no need to convince him that God was very real and alive. David wrote about how God was a very tangible comfort to him and constantly confused his enemies. As much as David was a highly skilled warrior, he attributed his success to God being the one Who trained him for battle, and that he gained all his victories from Him alone (Psalm 144:1). So when he deliberately declares, "The Lord lives!", He's shouting out a statement that has substantial evidence to back it! Today we want to remind you that God lives and desires to be a very real and tangible presence in your life. He is the fountain and author of life to everything that lives. Not only is He the giver of life, He is the supporter and sustainer of it too. That's why we can be confident that in Him, our lives in every sense are safe and secure. Just as David declared God to be His rock, a steady and firm foundation, we can as well. God proved to David that He was his refuge and protector, and He has promised to be ours too. He is the God of our salvation. What a powerful statement that is in itself. You see the word salvation means physical, mental and spiritual deliverance, rescue, safety and welfare! He doesn't just dabble in it, He is the God of rescue! When we choose to meditate and give attention to the truth that He is the God of our rescue, to deliver us out of our trouble, to keep us safe and secure and to take care of our welfare, then hope and faith to believe and receive His help will rise up inside us. Psalms 34:19 says, "Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all."
