The LORD My Stronghold

1 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? ~ Psalms 27:1

There will be situations that come up in your life that will invite the spirit of fear in 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 protection. Now understand that God thinks in terms of eternity because He is eternal, infinite, and 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 attacks you, though the situation seems hopeless, God is your strength, your protection, and He will deliver you. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t be caught up in your surroundings. Focus on God. Focus on His promises. Focus on who He is and who you are in Him. For greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Heavenly Father, thank You for being a wall and a shield around me. Teach me to lean on 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 toward eternity. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
