The Lord is our Fortress
“In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness”King David uttered these words to the Lord. He had full trust in the Lord. He knew that the Lord would never allow him to be ashamed, and that He would deliver him from all adversities into His righteousness.
The action word trust means to seek refuge and flee for protection. God our Father is the believer’s refuge and protection. With confidence we can also say, as David said, “In You, O LORD, I put my trust”.
It is hard, at times, to utter the above words, but we must fight the natural desire to trust in ourselves, and fully place our trust in Him.
As you fight the flesh (with the Lord’s power), do not succumb to your feelings of fear, anger or whatever if at first you don’t feel peace as His peace may take some time to reach you.
Simply keep calling on Him with a true heart and know that He is with you and desires only the best for you, His son or daughter; He willdeliver you from whatever it is that you are facing as He is your rock and fortress.
Read Psalm 31 and be blessed.
