The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
I shudder to think what my life would look like if it were not for Jesus. I know this....it would be a pile of pain, brokenness, open wounds, a mess of unforgiveness, full of pride, and a picture of dysfunction. This is what I would be without Him.
Psalms 27:1 says He is our light......the Word says He is our sun and shield (Ps. 84), a light unto our path (Ps. 119).....Jesus is light. He overcomes darkness. The enemy and his schemes are exposed when Jesus enters the scene. When we are walking around with the Light, we have salvation and there is nothing to fear.
The enemy wants to destroy you today with fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of death, fear of not enough money, fear of sickness, fear of loss, fear of hurt, fear of unfaithfulness. He knows how fear can control and dominate our life and distract us from the love Jesus wants to pour out on us. But the Light DRIVES OUT FEAR! Whom shall you fear? NOTHING... if the Light is alive and active inside of you!
Psalms 27:1 also says Jesus is our Stronghold. I love this picture of Jesus! He is this massive, powerful being we can hold on to. But WE HAVE TO HOLD ON! A Stronghold does no good if we are not holding on to it! It can be the most powerful tool we have, but if we are not connected to it, holding on tight to it, taking it at its Word.....it does us no good.
Again the Word asks....of whom shall I be afraid? Do you see what God is trying to get across to us in this verse? WE DON'T HAVE TO FEAR ANYTHING. He is saying He is ENOUGH FOR US. He IS ALL WE NEED. He is LIGHT. He is SALVATION. He is our STRONGHOLD.
If you feel weak today, take courage! Step into the presence of Light. Embrace your Salvation. Grab hold of your Stronghold and hold on for dear life!
You are not alone today. Whatever you are walking through, He is right there beside you.
Internalize Psalms 27:1. Let it begin to come out of your mouth. Let this verse drive fear away as you proclaim it as truth. Use it as a weapon to slice away at the flesh of every demonic spirit that is attacking your life today.
You are a child of the KING OF KINGS and you are walking in His light, living in His salvation, and He is the Stronghold of your life.
Tracie and I love you and would love to agree with you in prayer....please let us know your needs.
