Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional December 28th – An Impenetrable Fortress

(Jesus Is Your Strong Refuge And Fortress)

“I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!”

I want you to notice the language in our opening verse as David spoke; he said, “I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress….” He was saying, “I’ll confess that the Lord is my refuge; I’ll confess that the Lord is my fortress!”

His confession was positive and definite about who the Lord was to him. In Psalm 23:1, he said, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want”; what a way to think!

Can you dare to have this mindset about the Lord, and confess accordingly? It’ll completely change everything about your life.

Say of the Lord, “He’s my refuge, and my fortress!” That means no harm or evil can befall you; the Lord has formed a protective shield around you that’s impenetrable to the enemy.

The Bible says, “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day” (Psalm 91:5). Verse nine of the same chapter says, “Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.” This simply means, “No more fear!”

Someone says, “Oh I’m afraid at night; I don’t know why my heart always beats so fast at night; the slightest noise terrifies me”; stop the fear!

Whenever you want to go to sleep, declare, “The Lord is my refuge and my fortress; I refuse to fear the terror by night.”

Understand this: You’ve come out of death! So, you can’t be threatened, even by death. The One who’s your refuge—the Lord Jesus Christ—has destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil!

Greater is He that’s in you than he that’s in the world. Your life is hid with Christ, in God. It doesn’t matter what happens around you; fear not!

The Lord is my refuge and my fortress. He’s my habitation; in Him I live, and move, and have my being! He’s my rock, my life, and my righteousness; and by Him I reign and prevail over adversities and win every day in life. He’s my helper, the One who upholds me with His righteous right hand; the stronghold of my life. Blessed be His Name forever!
