Psalm 18:2 “The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Savior; my God is my Rock, in Whom I find protection. He is my Shield, the Power that saves me, and my Place of Safety.”
Sometimes life becomes a battlefield, circumstances you face that are beyond your control. Where do you go? Who do you run to?
A rock and fortress are places to hide, places to rest and get back your strength. When you find your place in God, when you seek Him as your place of shelter and protection, seek Him as your Savior and Deliverer, then you allow Him to deal with your circumstances. You give Him the invitation to get involved and you release the stress that you’re not meant to carry. Too much stress and your body eventually wears down and you get sick. God is there to help you. He says: I am your Shield- I protect you. I am your Rock – I keep you grounded so that you don’t get easily tossed by the wind and waves. I am your Fortress – I am your place of safety. I am your Strength – don’t rely on your own. I am your Savior – I am here to deliver you and set you free. What do you need me to be for you? Call on Me. I’m waiting.
“Abba, where would I be if You weren’t there for me? What hope would I have if I didn’t have You? You are everything I need! My life is in You! Thank You that You gave Your life for me through Jesus Christ. I have hope for a better tomorrow, and that the problems I face now I will overcome by Your power and strength. Lead me by Your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
