Fortress

Tornado Alley

03/28/2021

In a tornado, a storm shelter is the “go-to” place. It must be near. It must be stocked. Knowing we have a storm shelter gives us hope when we’re surrounded by deadly tornadoes. God is mindful that we live in stormy times on enemy ground. The apostle Peter writes that the devil prowls the earth looking for someone to devour. New Testament writers address the evil in the world. The question is, are we mindful that God is our FORTRESS? He’s our “go-to” person in the midst of life’s storms and temptations?  Perhaps you, like me, haven’t always thought of God as your fortress. If that’s the case, we can increase our mindfulness that He is and join the psalmist David’s resolve, “I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust.'” (Psalm 91:2) We can live the coming days with confidence in God, our FORTRESS. Are you in?

Lord God, You are our FORTRESS. Thank You that we can turn to You any time, day or night. 

Praise to Our FORTRESS

“I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my FORTRESS,
My God, in whom I trust!’”

Psalm 91:2

In a tornado, a storm shelter is the “go to” place. It must be near. It must be stocked. Knowing we have a storm shelter gives us hope when there is a threat of deadly tornadoes. God is mindful that we live in stormy times on enemy ground. The apostle Peter writes that the devil prowls the earth looking for someone to devour. New Testament writers address the evil in the world. The question is, are we mindful that God is our FORTRESS; that He’s our “go to” place in the midst of life’s storms and temptations?  Perhaps you’re like me and haven’t always been mindful of God as our FORTRESS. If that’s the case, we can increase our mindfulness by praising Him as David did. We can memorize and praise God, “My refuge and my FORTRESS, My God, in whom I trust.” We can believe and live our future days with confidence in God as our FORTRESS. We can go to Him in our times of storms, temptation, and evil.

Lord God, You are our FORTRESS. We love that we can turn to You any time, day or night. Thank You for providing Yourself as a safe haven in the midst of life’s storms, temptations, and evil.   

FORTRESS

“I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!’”

Psalm 91:2

In a tornado, a storm shelter is the “go to” place. It must be near. It must be stocked. Knowing you have a storm shelter gives confidence in the threat of deadly tornadoes. God is fully mindful that we live in stormy times on enemy ground. The apostle Peter writes that the devil prowls the earth looking for someone to devour. New Testament writers address the evil in the world. The question is, are you mindful that God is as a fortress to you? He’s your “go to” place in the midst of life’s storms and temptations. If not, begin praising Him as David did. Say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust.” Believe and live with confidence in your fortress

Lord God, You are my FORTRESS. I love that I can run to You any time, day or night. Thank You for providing Yourself as a safe haven in the midst of life’s storms and evil.
