II Samuel 22:2-3 ” The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior – from violent men You save me.”

God is our only reliable stronghold in the world today.  He is the fortress we can retreat to when fear over takes us.  He is our rescuer when wickedness and oppression take the very breath from us.  For  God is the only rock we can put our absolute trust in…the only refuge we can run to for safety.

Isaiah 45:22 ” Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”

The Lord says to you today…come back.  Turn around and face Me, for it’s only by Me that you can be delivered from all the evil that still clings to you.  You may have accepted Me in the past, but you are still a slave to things you have not been able to give up.  You have been set free of those things, but you either don’t fully realize it or just don’t want to leave them behind.  Change directions today… for those chains that have bound you in the past  have been broken off  –  you are no longer a victim…you are a victor.

Psalm 107

I urge you to read this Psalm sometime today…for within the 43 verses, you’ll see yourself portrayed somewhere.  For this passage tells of those who wander and are lost.  It tells of being in desperate situations…places that invoke  feelings of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness.  There are the lost – those who are wandering alone in the wilderness.  There are the guilty – those who are slaves to sin and full of shame and self-loathing.  There are the fools – godless ones being deceived by the world.  Finally, there are the tossed – those who have been battered by life’s storms.  But in all these situations, when they cried out to God for help, He answered.   So despite what you’re going through today… God is there,  ready and willing to help you.
