Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Two
Who do you call on when you are in trouble? This is full of troubles and it is guaranteed that everyone who passes through this world will encounter some form of trouble. The question is: who do you rely on when you go through those times of trouble? The Psalmist says that his refuge in times of trouble is the Lord. A fortress is a stronghold,(usually used by the military) that cannot be penetrated. You are safe when you are within your stronghold. Times of trouble are opportunities for the devil to attack our faith. It is therefore important for us to seek refuge in the Lord because the devil cannot go where the Lord is, and he certainly cannot destroy your faith when we are in the Lord.
