I love the quote that says, “With the power of God within us, we need never fear the powers around us.” We live in a world that thrives on fear. Because the Enemy knows how powerless, hopeless, and divided it keeps us. But as Christians, we need not fear the power that rules this corrupt world. For we have a great rock, fortress, and deliverer in the Lord. When we are afraid, lost, and alone, we want a pair of strong and comforting arms to run into. And we have those arms in Jesus. In Him we can find the refuge we so desperately crave. For He is our shield of protection, horn of salvation, and our stronghold. (Ps. 18:2) The Lord is as a strong tower, impenetrable to the evil one and his forces. And nothing can break down His walls or harm the ones inside. When this world gets to be too much, we can rejoice and give thanks knowing there is someone we can always cling to. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
