#40 that God is a fortress I can run to in trouble!
It is a comforting image: a fortress, high tower, hiding place. Some say fortresses are those ancient building which are made of stone. They are cold uncomfortable places.” But I would counter, “In the King’s presence there is comfort, warmth, peace and joy.” What comes to my mind, is a strong, big fire place. Tables of food display throughout the room. Laughter and interaction with the King and His other children. The King compassionate, caring, powerful and a joy to be around.
It is an inviting idea: to have a door opened at the time we run to it- not shut tight and guarded. God is a Mighty Fortress! I bless the Lord for that.
