“I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies.” Psalm 18:3 NASB
Because of God’s great character expressed in the previous verse, David calls on the Lord. In times of distress as well as in times of joy, David praises the Lord and worships Him. Worship is giving honor to the one who is worthy of the honor and recognizing the character and attributes of the one being worshiped. Worship is expressing reverence, adoration, and devotion to God. David is acknowledging that God is the one who has protected him and saved him from all his enemies.
Lord Jesus, You are my Savior and my Lord and are worthy of all my praise. I thank You for saving my soul and for providing protection, guidance, and direction in my life.
