Saved for His Glory


Psalm 18:3 (NKJV) – I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies.

Being the children of God, we have a privilege. The privilege of prayer and salvation. Since we are His children, we can call out to our Heavenly Father, anytime. We can connect to God and be vulnerable in His presence, revealing our scars to Him as a child would to their parent. Sometimes, the relationship switches from worship, praise and blessing to a booth for needs and wants to be fulfilled.

In the above verse, we see how when we cry out to God, no matter where we are, God’s mercy shines through. He provides for us and protects us from our adversities. Our obstacles, difficulties and failures are our enemies. What we see as a ‘rough spot’ is an opportunity for God’s glory to shine through.

For God’s healing and restoration power to shine through, it takes more than a prayer request. We have to acknowledge the presence of God. We have to acknowledge the greatness, majesty, and power of the God who made the heavens and the earth. It is when we acknowledge that God is above everything, that His power exceeds all our expectations and we fully relish the fatherly bond we have with God. It is then that we form a relationship with God which is much more than continuous requests without appreciation.

When we acknowledge the power of God, we can see all the work God has done in our lives. It gives us freedom through salvation and deliverance from all our trials and tribulations. This relationship helps us appreciate God’s love and worship Him with a thankful and joyful heart.
