You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet, like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress, my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape, my tower of rescue where none can reach me. My secret strength and shield around me, you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside, always the champion of my cause. Psalm 18:2 TPT
Ever need a rescue? You know, when you’re on your way to an appointment and the tire on your car goes flat? Or you’re driving to work and hit a patch of ice and off in the ditch you go. Perhaps your need for rescue has come in a way where you’re heart was broken, the thing you feared most was being spoken by a doctor, friend, spouse. The money is due and it’s just not here.
We all need a rescue at some point in our lives, so let me introduce you to my rescuer, His name is Jesus. He’s a strong tower, deliverer, healer, provider, protector, rescuer. He sees all, knows all, shows His secrets to those who ask. He hasn’t taken a break, gone on vacation or checked out for the day.
He’s a friend that is closer than a brother, He’s aware of everything going on in your life. His name is Jesus. The mention of His name calms storms, heals the sick and raises the dead. He’s not broken, you can still say His name and it still works the same today as it has and will forever.
Go ahead, close your eyes and say it outloud, Jesus! Say it again, Jesus. LOUDER-JESUS. Keep saying it until you feel His presence, receive His peace and assurance that He is watching over His word each and everyday. Jesus! I tell you this; regardless of what you face today, His name which is above every name, still works today.
Yet when holy lovers of God cry out to him with all their hearts, the Lord will hear them and come to rescue them from all their troubles. Psalm 34:17 TPT
