God is My Fortress

Are you weary, faint-hearted, fatigued, broken, or need strength to get through the day? To go where you need to go and do what you know the Lord wants of you. Turn to the Lord for your strength, guidance, and refuge! Remember God tells us that when you are weak that is when He makes you strong. That is when He will give you rest and peace. He will carry you, lead, guide, and protect. This is His great desire for those He loves.

For it is through our weakness that He makes us strong! Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! 1 Chronicles 16:11 

At many times you struggle and fret about many things in your life. You strive and work to gain ground, to climb the mountain of heartache, hardship, and affliction. Seeking to fix your problems, attain your goals on your own. You may even be praying continually for the Lord to help you. But the problem is, He is not an accessory, He is not a resourceful tool that fits in your hand, and He is not your little helper. 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 

He is the Lord God Almighty, who rules and reigns over all things, peoples, nations, and dominions! He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords! He speaks and all creation listens, He commands and all the universe obeys, and He moves and all things flee from His presence!

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence the earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. Revelation 20:11

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26 

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 

God is your refuge, strong tower, and fortress. You do not run outside of a refuge, you do not hold a strong tower like a weapon, and you do not carry a fortress on your back. But it is when you hide within the walls that you are safe. It is when you trust upon and within the Lord that He will defend you. 

There has to be a time when you come to a clear understanding. A point when you realize that you indeed are weak, and that is ok. When you realize the truth, understanding your position before the Lord, and with honesty say to Him, “I can do nothing without You Lord!” “Lord, I need You to do the work, fight my battles, and to carry me up that mountain!”

Then the Lord will answer, “Oh Yes my child, now you understand, now I can use you, now I will work powerfully through you! For you can not do my will through your own strength, but I will operate through you, with My power!” 

Live on Faith alone!

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Isaiah 40:29 

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
