Can I call God my own?

Cave fresco on a farmer’s land, Cappadocia, Turkey

In my distress I called upon the Lord and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from his temple and my cry entered his ears.”  2 Samuel 22:7

My God.  David claimed God as his own — which meant that he knew him and had a relationship with him.  God recognized his cry as David knew that he would.

Do I own my relationship with God?  Have I made him mine? Can I say with such surety (as David did) that God knows and hears my voice?  If I can’t say yes, then my biggest prayer, above all others, is that you, Lord, would make me to know you.

My strength is not in my own self and understanding but comes directly from you.

I pray that I would find my life and security in you — as David did.

For by you I can run against a troop; by my God I can leap over a wall.  I can accomplish anything you set before me.
