“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.”Psalm 59:16 NIV
The Lord is our refuge and our fortress. In this life we will face many trials and tribulations. At times we will feel overwhelmed and somehow the Lord has abandoned us. But all the while He walks with us. He is growing our faith and teaching us to rely upon His word and to let go of our feelings and emotions.
Many new Christians struggle because they rely heavily upon their feelings and emotions. But as we are tested we will learn to let go of our feelings and emotions. We will learn that God has designed every step and everything we will face. There is a purpose behind all things. Even though it seems at times we have been forgotten, we haven’t. God is growing us one step at a time.
