"I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." Psalm 18:1-2.
We often forget the Lord is our strength and that if we would remember this and ask Him for deliverance from our enemies, He would oblige us. Too often, we want to do things ourselves first and only when we fail do we go to God for help.
