“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2
The word “behold” in this verse indicates a sense of wonder and amazement over the news that Almighty God is my salvation. The verse goes on to describe trust that is born out of our relational dimension with God that is real and personal. God promises to deliver His people from anything that might destroy them. What great reason the child of God has to be strong in the face of an army of opposition. What an abundance of praise ought to fill our hearts as He fuels our song to Him. He is worthy of our praise. Perhaps the greatest hindrance to a life of praise and worship is the lack of time in our busy schedules to stop and say “Thank You.”
- Lord God, You are my salvation. You have never let me down. I ask that You would draw me to You in worship. Help me to order my day so that You have the first and best time on my schedule.
