"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."
The Lord our God is the One who is strong. God is our resting place.
"He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah"
- Psalm 62:6-8
He is our protection from the evil of this world. He is the One who gets victory over the enemies of His people.
God's redemption in raising up a horn of salvation is "that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear." - Luke 1:74
God's aim in raising a horn of salvation is not merely to free an oppressed nation, but to create a holy and righteous people who are able to live without fear because they can put their trust Him. (Psalm 9:10 & Romans 15:13)
God is His defence (His shield) and His offence (His deadly and powerful horn).
He is the horn of salvation, He is protecting His people.
Jesus is the horn of our salvation because He is God and He saves His people from their enemies and all who hate them. (Psalm 138:7)
Let us go away today, knowing that Jesus is our salvation!
