'He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.'
Psalm 18: 16-19
He rescues, not because he feels sorry for me, but because he 
delights. in. me. 

Let that sink in. He longs to give us victory, not because he has to because he created us and died for us. 
His motive in it all is this:
He delights in you!

Bravo, God, Bravo!

'In my distress, I called to the Lord, I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. 
The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. 
Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. 
Psalm 18: 6-8

To know this truth: 
That my cry is heard. 
that my God acts upon my cry. 
That his consuming fire burns forth--for my heart to be his and for my enemies to be consumed. 
These grasses lit with the fire of the setting sun remind me of my God, who loves and acts with an 
Consuming Fire.
