“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the HORN OF MY SALVATION, my stronghold.”

Psalm 18:2

Why is our Lord described as the HORN OF SALVATION? Scholar Herbert Lockyer explains: “the figure of the Horn is taken from those animals whose strength is in their horns. Because the horn was once the instrument of the oxen’s strength, it became the symbol of power. And our God and Savior came as a HORN, or mighty instrument of SALVATION. In addition, when horns were fixed to an altar they became projections to which sacrifices were bound and to which those who needed protection could cling. If Jesus is your HORN OF SALVATION, then He has all strength to keep you saved and safe. He is not like the Grecian king described as ‘the great horn that was broken’ (Daniel 8:8, 21, 22). Nothing or no one can break our indestructible Horn.”

HORN OF SALVATION, we praise You, our strength and salvation…today and for eternity.
