You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely. Psalm 59:17
Relying on someone or something is something that every person does all the time. People rely upon their boss to give them their paycheck in a timely matter; they rely on others to stay on their own side of the road when driving; they rely on their vehicle to work; they rely upon the electricity company to provide the needed electricity; and the list goes on forever. Many will also rely only upon their selves.
With all of these things or people that people rely on there is one problem, they can let a person down. Equipment fails, people do not always do what they are supposed to do, or greater problems occur, preventing something from happening.
David had quickly learned that some of those people, whom he should have been able to rely upon had turned their backs on him and sought to kill him. However, he knew he could rely upon God. God would be his fortress and strength.
God is always there for every believer. He is a fortress that has walls thick enough and high enough that no enemy can break through. The only things that God allows through the walls of that fortress is what is best for the believer. Everything else is blocked.
This can give amazing strength to the believer. He now has the ability to overcome every attack of the enemy, when God is His fortress. Standing behind the walls of God’s fortress provides a protection that no one or any thing on this earth can provide.
God is faithful and will not fail in His protecting you. His fortress will stand the tests of time and the attacks of the enemy.
As a believer step into God’s fortress. Be filled with His Holy Spirit and know that you have His protection upon you at all times, in every situation. There is no enemy strong enough to get to you without God’s permission.
Do not turn to things and people of this world, because they can and will fail when needed. God will never fail you. You can rely upon Him to do what He said He would do each and every time.
As you see His strength and power in your life, sing praises to Him. Give Him praise for protecting you and being your strong tower of protection.
I pray today that you will know the power of God; that you will know the protection God has for you; that you will know you can rely upon God; that you will know God’s faithfulness; and that you will sing praises to God each day.
