When life seems
uncertain, where do you run? Do you go to your friends and vent about your frustrations? Do you call your parents? Do you talk to your spouse?
None of these things are bad, necessarily, but the most important thing to remember during times of trouble is to stay rooted in the Lord.
Psalm 9:9-10 says, “The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.”
Have you made the Lord your stronghold? Do you trust in Him completely? Are you getting your worth and value from Him? Are you talking to Him and confessing to Him, as you would in any other relationship?
These are very important questions to consider, because they will reveal where your stronghold actually is. In this world, we will have troubles, but when we are rooted in the Lord, we will have peace and strength here on earth, plus life in Heaven for eternity.
Then share that peace and security with those people in your world who are looking for a stronghold to protect them.
“In this world, we will have troubles, but when we are rooted in the Lord, we will have peace and strength here on earth, plus life in Heaven for eternity.”
