I am still amazed that my Savior can be comfort, shelter, tower of refuge and strength to all his people all the time. Often, I am more concerned with what he can do for me that I end up asking more and praising less. Regardless of my current circumstances, I need to remember to praise God for who he is.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for caring enough about me to be my strong tower and refuge when I’m fearful and confused. I know I am yours and that no one can snatch me out of your loving, possessive hand. No one or nothing—not even death or life can separate me from you!
Ask: Is there a medical issue confusing you and baffling doctors, or do you fight a monthly battle to pay the bills? Do you sense assurance and comfort as you walk through trials and tribulations? Can you praise God for answered prayer in the past and trust him for your future?
Shout to the Lord!
“My Jesus, my Savior, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love. My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength, let every breath, all that I am, never cease to worship you.
Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing power and majesty, praise to the King, mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of your name. I sing for joy at the work of your hand. Forever I’ll love you, forever I’ll stand. Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.” – Darlene Zschech
