The Lord is the Stronghold of Our Lives

Psalm 27:1 says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?” Like many psalms, King David wrote this from a season of trouble. Yet, it is a song of confidence and triumph because David was not in darkness or ultimate peril because the Lord was his light and salvation. God Himself brought light to David’s life. He did not despair in darkness and all that it represented. His life was filled with the Lord, and his life was filled with the light. The same can be applied to our lives. When your soul is anxious, remember that the Lord is the stronghold of your life. Only when we you recognize this can you truly be filled with light.

Anxiety and fear are relentless. These are two of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. But when you trust in God in all circumstances, your soul can find rest. Cast your anxieties on the Lord and do not be anxious about anything for God is with you.
