Psalm 18:2 “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Once in a while I see a post from my friends in Nicaragua that is written in their native language. The words are familiar, but the Spanish version sounds more powerful as I read it aloud. Psalm 18 is King David’s description of God. The words: rock, fortress, strength, shield, stronghold, deliverer, and salvation all sound like a mighty military force that provides secure protection from any enemy.

Try saying the words in Spanish. Roca, Castillo, Fortaleza, Fuerza, Libertador, Salvacion, Refugio. It sounds like the supernatural force that I want on my side to fight every battle against my own destructive ways or anyone who would do me harm.

How is it possible for spiritual power to be so strong that it can shield and save us? We read the remarkable stories of battles in the Bible, but there are historical events and current occurrences that are phenomenal as well. Victories when the odds are overwhelming. Healing when there is no hope. Miracles when all seems lost. This is the evidence of something more human effort or a lucky day. God’s love is powerful and an ever present force.

This power has been made known in every nation. The gospel of Jesus has been shared throughout the world as he commissioned. Every language has a translation of the Good News. Christ is our salvation through his death and resurrection. Sing Hallelujah and praise his holy name.

My friends at “Christ in the City” in Managua worship with passion. They share the the news that there is freedom and forgiveness from our sins. They transform lives and strengthen the faith of those who have so little to hope for. They made a difference in my life five years ago when I went on mission. Thank you Fabricio José Mendoza Avelares and Claudia Garcia Mendoza for your wonderful work. Let every tongue proclaim His name and know the wonder of His love.
