The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are saved. The worldly rely on their material gain to be their savior.
God is our refuge, even his name is powerful. The righteous can run to him and he will keep us safe. This doesn’t mean that we will never face trials, but he will always stand with us and help us through them. We will still face the consequences of living in a sinful world, but with the peace of knowing that it is temporary and he is with us. We can call out his name in time of trouble and he is there to surround us with his love and mercy.
Lord, thank you for being my fortress and friend. Help me to fully rely on you and your strength and not seek out a worldly false sense of security.
Lord be with my dear friend who is hurting and struggling with this sudden illness. Protect her and be her fortress. Be with the medical staff working with her. Give them guidance. Heal her with your loving powerful hands. Use her testimony to reach her family and others. Let them know that you are there with her and we give you the glory.
