The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1


To whom and where else should we turn in times of stress? Surely our friends can help, especially those that are faithful followers. Surely, there are well-meaning associates who can provide well-intentioned advice. Surely, we are blessed to have these people in our lives. The words of God and the ways of God are always more certain and truer. They do not contain words or ways that please the world.  They are from our heavenly source and like a well-crafted arrow, true in its flight. By turning our hopes, dreams, and desires over to God we build a life that becomes a stronghold. A life resistant to the turmoil that can arise like a pounding storm. In this triumphant stronghold, we can have confidence and assurance that God is with us.

Points of Reflection

  • To whom and where else should we turn in times of stress?
  • How often do we read the Bible to receive the words of God?
  • Who is our greatest confidant in life and why?

Blessings, until next time,
