My Fortress

 

 I’m sure you have seen them.

Movies of medieval times and warfare that ensued.

Masses of people taking refuge inside castles.

Arrows shot, bouncing off the hard stone they were constructed of.

If an attack was eminent, heading toward the inside of the castle for protection was a good choice.

Those caught outside would be vulnerable to the weapons of the enemy.

Centuries before this time period, King David wrote these words:

I love you, O LORD, my strength.

  The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
   my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.–from Psalm 18:1,2

We are in a spiritual battle today.

I am.

You are.

Failing to acknowledge the advancement and hostility of the enemy will not change reality.

The Bible warns us of what we are striving with in Ephesians 6:12:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Exactly what are we supposed to do when we are attacked by rulers, authorities and powers of this dark world?

What are we supposed to do when we are attacked by spiritual forces of evil?

The LORD is our fortress and our deliverer.

Fiery arrows shot from the enemy are deflected from the Rock, who is our God.

As we take refuge in Him, we are safe.

In the movies, no one pretends to be as strong as the stone that surrounds them.

On the contrary, it is the understanding of their frailty that brings them to seek safety behind the walls of the castle.

Is there any reason for us to pretend that we can handle whatever is going on in our lives without the ultimate protection of God surrounding us?

By understanding our human frailty, we acknowledge our need to seek refuge in Him.

The battle is widespread and raging.

Don’t be vulnerable to the weapons of the enemy.

The LORD is our strength.

Run to Him……

    Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.
