Declare It, and That’s It!
Declare – Psalm 91:2
I will say of the Lord “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust”
When we think of the Lord as our refuge, and fortress we know that it’s where we go for shelter. Straight to the Lord. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. As we “road map” through the scriptures I can have have confidence in this. We need to “SAY”, “DECLARE”
that we can TRUST God. The writer was struggling here. Fear? Anxieties? Trouble? Worry? Stress? Depression? Who knows what what going through the mind of the Psalmist here, but he was certainly sure of something, as WE can be sure of something. We can go to God and declare Him our Refuge, and Fortress… our protection. We can trust God in the most difficult times.
Going back to the ROAD MAP part I was mentioning in the beginning. We know that taking “REFUGE” in God as our Fortress/Shelter means going to HIS WORD. Since The Word is God, we know that it will never come out VOID. We know that we can lean and trust in it. Going to the Word Daily will feed our minds, and hearts to allow us to deal with the daily issues/temptations/stresses that we are having to deal with. I can guarantee ONE THING here. If you are spending time in DAILY DEVOTION and TRULY receiving the Word of God through time with Him. It will ALWAYS PAY OFF! As I sit here, and write this I know with all surety through the scriptures that God is going to work in someones life to give them a peace and comfort through the Word… If and ONLY IF they are daily reaching out to HIM and seeing “The Word” as their Fortress/Shelter/Refuge.
Don’t let whatever you are dealing with get the BEST of you. Share it with HIM, and I DECLARE your VICTORY!
