For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress

But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your loving kindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress.

Psalm 59:16 NASB

The Lord is our stronghold.  He is the one who sustains us throughout this journey we call life.  For everything God has called us to do, He has equipped us for His purposes.  Our journey with Him is a journey of progressive growth.  Through every trial and challenge we learn to rely upon the Lord each and every day.  We learn to decrease so that He may increase in us.

God has given us His word to guide our lives, to correct us, and to encourage us on a daily basis.  Time spent daily in God’s word will renew our minds and transform our lives.  It will give us the proper perspective in every situation.  If we walk this journey without spending time in God’s word we will see all things from an earthly perspective.  We will see things as impossible and will believe things to be limited.  But when we diligently study the scripture daily we will have a heavenly perspective.  We will believe and understand with the Lord nothing is impossible.  We will see with God there are no limits and that whatever He has called and commissioned us to do is indeed possible because it is simply accomplished through Him and by His hand.
