“Our Impregnable Fortress”

Key Verse

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

TEXT — Psalm 46:1-10


In the first stanza of his 1529 hymn, “A Mighty Fortress”, Martin Luther, a German theologian, wrote, “A Mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing; our helper he, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing. For still our ancient foe does seek to work us woe; his craft and power are great, and armed with cruel hate, on earth is not his equal”.

This quote underscores God’s incomparable capacity and unparalleled testimony to keep and shield His people from every type of calamity or enemy. The Christian is assured in the text of God’s all-powerful presence at all times. He can keep, guide and fight our battles. When dependable people, trusted friends or material things fail, God is always there for you. All raging wars and conflicts against His children end at His command and their enemies will be found liars unto them.

God does not often keep storms away from us but preserves us while they are raging. Storms do not mar but make saints of God. Many believers do not enjoy His supernatural intervention in their travails because they allow their fears to overwhelm them and blind their eyes to God’s protective power over them. Are you going through any storms or difficult situations now? Look up and see God in your storms. Sing, smile and praise Him in your storms, and you will see His glory. He is your refuge and a very present help in troubles.

Never forget that the One with you is greater than those in the world. He is bigger than any problem that you cannot see. When fear assails, remind yourself of His unfailing promises. Read and meditate on God’s word daily, appropriate the promises to claim your victory through prevailing prayer.

Thought for the day

God is our impregnable Defence.
