The Lord is Our Fortress {Something to Think About}

The name of the Lord is a strong fortress;
the godly run to him and are safe.
(Proverbs 18:10 NLT)

fortress - a fortified place; a place of security or survival (Tyndale NLT Study Bible)

Where do you go when you are afraid, lonely, hurt, confused, weak, tired and weary, and ready to give up?

Run to the Lord where He provides shelter, comfort, and safety. He loves on us with compassion and gives us rest.

Spend time with God in prayer and in His Word where He guides us and gives us peace. There is nothing the Lord cannot handle. Let Him calm you from anxiety and fear, and strengthen you as only He can.

In Christ,

  1. Well, we used the same verse, but different translation and different photos. Yours is neat! Since I know the Lord laid it on me to do it, and you did, there must be people who will read our verses and have their hearts touched. How cool is that?

    1. Very cool! This verse touched me when I read it and I knew it was the one for today. I love to watch God bring several of us to the same verse or theme at the same time!

  2. Very cool to see you both using the same verse - in your own voices!

  3. Love this photo!! As well and verse choosen!

  4. I can't wait to read Caryjo's post! That's amazing you both used the same verse. And this is one of my favorite verses. Running into is safe, strong arms!

  5. Amen! That was the verse God gave to me years ago when we were unemployed, running out of money, running our of housing, running out of insurance and I was pregnant with 3 young children. He is so faithful!

  6. I love this -- it is so true! When we run to Him, we will find refuge! Blessings, Laura!

  7. Hi Laura - this is such a great truth. As i get older, i am learning to sooner run to the Lord, my strong tower
    God bless

  8. I think the word that jumped out to me in your post, Laura was the word RUN. No self doubting or second guessing, no maybe I will turn and go, no well if this doesn't work out, I slowly get back to RUN to HIm! i needed that reminder today. Thanks

  9. I love this...the photo and the verse are perfect together!
