Bible Verse for Today
“He said: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.” (2 Samuel 22:2)
Those were the words of David when God delivered him from the hands of his enemies. He knew his power couldn’t help him that all his victories came from God. He experienced divine protection. You should know that the Lord can only be your fortress when you put your trust in Him alone and not finding alternatives. David trusted God so much for protection and He was never disappointed. Psalm 125:1 says, “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.” When you trust in the LORD, you hook yourself to Him, and He becomes your fortress.
God builds walls of protection round about his people. Psalm 125:2 says, “As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord round about his people from henceforth even forever.” If you are doubting God’s ability to protect you totally, this is for you. Some people are afraid to move forward in life or to do good things because they feel they will be attacked by people if they succeed. Don’t forget that God prospers and protects all together. The Lord is assuring you now that if you put your trust in Him, your protection is guaranteed.

I thank you Lord because you are my fortress, my present help in times of troubles. If not for you, the storm of life might have blown me away, but you are the pillar that hold my life. When the enemies show their face, you stood by me and you delivered me.
Thank you Father for your divine power at work in me to accomplish every task that you’ve planned for me. Your spirit is working in me therefore, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. You are my fortress; therefore, I make progress by the power in Jesus name. Amen.
