Do you ever want to run away from the evil in our world or perhaps wish you could run away from your own wayward thoughts? If so, go to God, who David likens to a STRONGHOLD. In Biblical times, a stronghold was a high place, a place of retreat, and for many years, it was David’s safe house. In 2 Samuel 22:3, after the Lord saved him from Saul, David pens these words of praise, “My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, My shield and the horn of my salvation, my STRONGHOLD and my refuge.” Do we know God as our stronghold? If not, He invites us to come to Him. He is high and lifted up. We can flee our fears, wayward thoughts, and the fiery darts of Satan by retreating to Him in prayer.
Lord God, we praise You, our STRONGHOLD. Thank You that we can retreat into Your presence.
