The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
This verse is power and VERY insightful. As I read this today, something jumped out at me. Why would God be our shield?
Because there is a war being waged for your heart and soul. The fight is on. Yet, for many of us we fight the battle all by ourselves.
Sometimes I feel like once we become Christians we have joined the fight Club…Where the only rule is “DON’T TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB” We don’t share the struggles were in!Whether we are afraid to, or “can’t” because ___________ enter your lame excuse. Even worse yet, we trade in our sins for ones that are easier to hide rather than face the humiliation of admitting that we have problems.
If we don’t talk about the fight, then we don’t give God the glory. It’s his fight too. It’s his more than it’s ours and we rob the Glory from him by hiding our pains.
IT’S HIS PROMISE that he will FIGHT FOR YOU, HE WILL DEFEND YOU, HE WILL PROTECT YOU.
Fight the fight and live the promise!!
So, I know you are wondering what the payoff is?
“I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.”
