16 But I will sing of Your power;
Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;
For You have been my defense
And refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises;
For God is my defense,
My God of mercy. Psalm 59:16-17
The Lord is our refuge and our defense. He is our strong tower in our time of trouble. We live in a world that is filled with darkness and wickedness and if we fail to understand all we have in Jesus, we can live in a state of fear. But we have nothing to fear. The Lord prepares and leads us through every step. He allows trouble and tribulation to come our way to continue to mold and shape us. As we trust Him each step of the way He gives us the strength that we need. As we mature we learn to rely fully upon the Lord’s strength and let go of our own. His word is filled with promises for our lives and we would be very wise to daily study His word and meditate upon His promises for us.
