“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I cut them down. They surrounded me on every side, but in the name of the Lord I cut them down. They swarmed around me like bees, but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them down. I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: ‘The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!’ I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.”
Oh, how much we need these words in our world today. No matter what surrounds us, the Lord is our refuge. No matter the enemies, He is our strength. He is our defense. But even beyond that, He is our salvation. There is nothing more important than that because it isn’t just for today, it is for eternity. The place where we can firmly plant our feet is that when we have Him as our Savior we will never die, but we will live.
And so, it becomes our job to proclaim the incredible message of what the Lord has done. Why not share that with someone today.
Lord, please help me to be one who proclaims the message of so great a salvation.
