Tuesday August 5 – Build a fortress
Come and worship
‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.’ Psalm 45:6
Meditate on His Word Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
Scholars believe that Psalm 46 is a psalm of consolation for Israel, possibly during the invasion by Sennacherib, to console itself with the thought of God’s might, protecting care, and His ability to shatter all the combinations that the enemy may form against
it. While today, in our city, we don’t necessarily have to be concerned with an outside military force attacking, we should be concerned about the very real enemy that does. Satan will find a hole in the armor in which to attack and unless we are prepared, we will be struck. As believes, we look to God as our fortress an our very present help in our time of need.
Reflect and give thanks
Give thanks to the Lord that He is our refuge and our strength and is always there for us. Whatever the storms of life may bring, He is bigger.
To work on your heart to trust in Him more, to rest on His strength and not on your own. Pray for people in your workplace or school or social circles that have yet to put their trust in Jesus. Ask that the Lord would show you the people that need to hear that they have
a Father that want to be their refuge. People that need to hear that they don’t have to go through the struggles in this world alone.
