God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
God is our strength and our refuge. In this world we will face trials and challenges. We will experience suffering and loss. But through every battle we face the Lord is leading us to victory. The Lord is carrying us and giving us the strength to overcome. For His strength and His grace is sufficient for all things. A lesson every new believer needs to learn is fully relying and trusting the Lord. Often times early on in our walk with Christ we will try to battle from a place of our own strength. This will always end in defeat because God has designed it this way. Through every trial we face the Lord allows them to come into our lives to produce within us the depths of who He is. He is continually pruning away the things of the sinful nature and He is continually replacing them with who He is. This journey is about being transformed and being changed. We can know in the depths of our hearts that in our hour of trial, the Lord is ever present and we need to place every battle in His hands. We simply do this through prayer. Hold fast my brother and sister and know that as you trust the Lord, the Lord shall lead you to victory. For He is our strength and our refuge. He is our shield and our rampart. He is the good Shepherd who will always lead us in the way we should go.
