My Stronghold

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” ~ Psalm 27:1ESV

There will be situations that arise that will invite the spirit of fear into your life, but fear not for the LORD Himself is a shield round about you. Though the world might seem dark and gloomy, He is the light of your salvation. Though the wicked threaten and rage against you, the LORD God Almighty is the stronghold in your life.

The word stronghold means a place or a means of safety; in other words, He is your safety and your protection. Now understand that God thinks in terms of eternity because He is eternal, He is infinite, and He dwells outside of time. We live bound to time, so it’s hard for us to understand the concept with our finite minds.

But know this, though the people rage, though the enemy Buffet you, though the situation seems hopeless, God is your strength, and your protection, He will deliver you.

Heavenly Father, thank You for being a wall and a shield around me. Teach me to lean and depend on You. No matter the circumstances, or even the outcome, let my love for You never diminish. But rather, let me keep my eyes, thoughts, and hope turned towards eternity and the things of God. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
