Weekday devotionals for Christians

Spiritual Fortress

 

Psa 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psa 91:2  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Psa 91:3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

 

Bragging on God is a wonderful thing for every christian to do, infact, it is a vital part of a christian’s relationship with Jesus.  This “bragging” can also be labelled as, but not limited to praise.  When is the last time you bragged on God to someone?  I want to point out though that I don’t believe that praise is the main thought or principle being taught here in verse 2.  I believe the main thought is the fact that He is my refuge… not will be some day or has been in times past.

God wants to be your refuge and fortress today.  He wants to be the One thing to whom you trust in, the place you run to, and the God you go to for answers.  Refuge in verse 2 is a place for someone to go to when the elements outside of your control are at a dangerous point.  I think of a tornado shelter when I read of this verse.  But happy is the christian who runs to God even when they think that they can handle things on their own; for in so doing, they immediately go to the One who can immediately change the present circumstances that they are in.  Fortress is also a place to go to when someone needs security from a human danger.  A fortress in this verse indicates that this is a strong hold that cannot be penetrated from the outside.  This fortress was built for the main purpose of defense.  When people run into the fortress, they are assured of security and safety from outside dangers.  Do you have a refuge AND fortress?  If not, only you can change it!  Today is the best day to do it!

-You have the keys to the secret place!!
