“You are my strength, I watch for You; You, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.” - Psalm 59:9
In this verse, it says that God is our strength. Isn’t that wonderful? If you have ever had to do something that made you really nervous like I have, then you know that it can be really tough! But, God is always ready to help if we pray to Him for strength. Psalm 59:9 also says that God is our fortress. A fortress is a military stronghold for protection during battle, so that means He protects us, and that makes me so thankful!
Some people struggle at times to believe that God is really there because of problems that arise. But this verse assures us that we can rely on Him and trust Him fully. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). That means his character never changes, so we can trust that no matter what happens, He remains trustworthy.
It is so comforting for me to know that we have a God who we can fully rely on and trust, and who is happy to be our good Father, always taking care of us. I hope that this encourages you to lean on God, and that it reassures you of God’s constant love for you.
