My Personal God - The Horn of My Salvation

The eternal God of the universe wants to be your close, personal friend. He longs to be your Hope. Your Trust. For you to know Him as my Father. To become your personal God. Who do you turn to first when you need stability and protection? The Lord wants you to turn to Him. God wants to lead you, guide you, and direct your paths safely. In Psalm 18:2, God is described as “the horn of my salvation.” Used here, “horn” symbolizes God’s power and strength. It refers to the horn on an animal, like a rhinoceros, which gives it great strength among other animals. God’s “horn” shows His ability to govern, protect, give strength to, and preserve His believers every second of every day. God is also described as the horn of my salvation in the New Testament. Before Jesus’s birth, His mother Mary praised God for the coming Christ-child. She thanked God for raising up a horn of salvation, referring to Jesus in her womb (Luke 1:69). This “horn of salvation” through Jesus reflects an eternal salvation and security. How? Because it is Jesus’s strength - not ours - that conquers and sets us free from sin. His strength paid the price. His strength defeated evil by His death on the cross. His strength assured our eternal life with Him. When overtaken by life’s problems, do you immediately turn to the Lord for strength and protection? Pray to your personal God today: “Daddy, thank you for the promise of my salvation. You are the One who keeps Your promises to me. Help me rely on Your strength to protect me, guide me, and lead me. You, Lord, are the horn of my salvation!” God’s strength is the Horn of my Salvation. It’s available to us all each and every day.
