love You, LORD; You are my strength, my rock, my fortress, and my
savior. You are my
protection, my shield, the strength of my salvation, and my stronghold.
I will call on You LORD, for You are worthy of praise, for You saved me
from my enemies. When the ropes of death surrounded me; when the floods
of destruction swept over me; when the grave wrapped its ropes around
me; and death itself stared me in the face, Jesus, you came to my rescue. In my
distress, I cried out to You. Yes Lord, I prayed to You for help and You
heard me from Your sanctuary; my cry reached Your ears.
Then the earth quaked and trembled; the foundations of the mountains
shook; they quaked because of Your anger. Smoke poured from Yours
nostrils; fierce flames leaped from Your mouth; glowing coals
flamed forth from You, then You opened the heavens and came down to see
about me; dark
storm clouds were beneath Your feet. Mounted on a mighty angel, You
flew, soaring on the wings of the wind. You shrouded Yourself in
darkness, veiling Your approach with dense rain clouds. The brilliance
of Your presence broke through the clouds, raining down hail and burning
coals. You thundered from heaven; the Most High gave a mighty shout. You
shot Your arrows and scattered Your enemies; Your lightning flashed, and
they were greatly confused.
Then at Your command, O LORD, at the blast of Your breath, the
bottom of the sea could be seen, and the foundations of the earth
were laid bare. Then Jesus, You reached down, You reached down from heaven and rescued me;
Jesus You reached down and drew me out of deep waters. You delivered me from my powerful enemies,
from those who hated me and were too strong for me. Lord, they attacked me at
a moment when I was weakest, they attacked me Jesus when I was down, but praise Your Holy Name, You upheld me!
You led me to a place of safety; and rescued me because You delight in
You rewarded me for doing right; You compensated me because of my
innocence. For I have kept Your ways LORD; I have not turned from You to
follow evil. For all Your laws are constantly before me; I have never
abandoned Your principles. I am blameless before You Lord; I have
kept myself from sin, and because of the innocence of my hands in Your
sight, You rewarded me for doing right,
To the faithful You show Yourself faithful; to those with integrity You
show integrity. To the pure You show Yourself pure, but to the wicked
You show Yourself hostile. You
rescue those who are humble, but You humiliate the proud. LORD, You have
brought light to my life; my God, You light up my darkness. In Your
strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall, with You
Jesus nothing is impossible!
O’ Lord, Your way is perfect. All of Your promises prove true. You
are a shield for all who look to You for protection. You are my Lord, my
solid rock. You arm me with strength; You made my way safe. You made me
as surefooted as a deer, leading me safely along the mountain heights.
You prepare me for battle; You strengthen me to draw a bow of bronze.
You have given me the shield of Your salvation. Your right hand supports
me; Your gentleness has made me great. You have made a wide path for my
feet to keep them from slipping.
Your love gave me the strength, the power, the anointing to chase my
enemies and catch them; Father, I did not stop until every one of them were conquered. In
the name of Jesus, I struck them down so they could not get up; they fell beneath my feet.
Lord, You have armed me with strength for the battle; You have subdued my
enemies under my feet. You made them turn and run; I have destroyed all
who hated me. They called for help, but no one came to rescue them. They
cried to the LORD, but You refused to answer them. Then in the name of
Jesus, I ground them as fine
as dust carried by the wind and swept them into the gutter like
Father, You gave me victory over my accusers. You appointed me as the ruler over
nations; people I don't even know now serve me. As soon as they
hear of me, they submit; foreigners cringe before me. They all lose
their courage and come trembling from their strongholds.
The LORD lives! Blessed be my SOLID ROCK! May the God of my
salvation be exalted! You
are the God who pays back those who harm me; You subdued the nations
under me and rescued me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the
reach of my enemies; You save me from violent opponents. For this,
O LORD, I will praise You among the nations; I will sing joyfully
to Your name. You give great victories to your child; You show unfailing
love to Your anointed, I will praise Your Holy Name forever.
