How You are Known (12) – Fortress

“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.” (Psalm 18:2)

“A mighty fortress is my God,” and no evil may reach the soul that shelters there. There is no saint of God who may look back through all the troubled years of any earthly pilgrimage, and not say, if he shall truly speak, “I have been kept by the power of God.” Every failure of our lives and each defeat has come when we have sought some earthly fortress rather than our Lord. I am hiding, Lord, in Thee. Amen.
