September 2nd – The Fortress Within

Each day is as a battle. Against the flesh you are to war. The world calls without pause, diverting the holy to the common. Each strike of the enemy also against the saint. For those who call Me Lord, the day grows heavier to carry with righteousness, but strength is given to those who do not choose to fall. Great trouble is the lot of many – challenges of fault, and those outside of their cause. Sin calls from every side, and peace very distant in mind. Run to Me. Stand in the fortress of My Word and promise. I do not fold in anguish, nor bow to weariness. You have the nourishment you need. Your load is heavy, but you are able to bear it. My strength is with you, and My help near to My children. Temptation abounds, but strength of Heaven, and forgiveness of the stumble, abound all the more. Stand strong against the wind. You shall prevail. My fortress in you will stand.

Psalm 18:2-3 (ESV) – The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Bottom Line: Some days are almost unbearable. In one day so much can go wrong, especially if you have a high stress job, or work in a high stress environment.  Sometimes we feel we can bear no more, and we are tempted to handle things our way instead of His way. If you are there today, don’t give-in to behavior less than your calling. The Word of God in you is a mighty fortress of strength and protection, and is your hope against the stress and temptations of this world. Read again His promises. Stand strong, as this too shall pass.
