The other day I was doing my devotions and I was reading My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. The scripture verse reference was found in 2 Samuel and after reading the verse for the day I decided to flip backward a page in my Bible. I saw this verse underlined:
“This God — his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights.” -2 Samuel 22:31-34
In that moment, those words struck me. “This God…” MY God. He’s MY father in Heaven – the Creator of the universe. His word proves true over and over again. He is a shield, he is a rock and he is a strong refuge. I was just overwhelmed with the sense that I get to know him and not only that, but that he knows me. He knitted me together in my mother’s womb, he created my inmost being (Psalm 139:13)
I loved being reminded of God’s faithfulness through this verse and so I decided that it was worth engraving in my memory. From September 1-15, I am memorizing these words because the word of the LORD proves true and I want this in my mind and on my heart.
