God Will Remain Our Sure Refuge
June 26 - Devotion
David experienced difficulties and cried to God for help. He understood that it is only God who has enough power to completely deliver him. David prayed and said,
“Help me, O Lord my God! Oh, save me according to your mercy, that they may know that this is your hand—That You, Lord, have done it! Let them curse, but you bless; When they arise, let them be ashamed, But let your servant rejoice. Let my accusers be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle” (Psalm 109:26-29).
God is a strong refuge in time of need; he will provide and protect his children who cry for help. No matter how terrible a battle may appear, God will bring it under control. He will convert curses to blessings, and he will transform oppressions to promotions. Meanwhile, children of God are expected to be proactive in their prayers and express their trust in God, so that they can enjoy God’s benefits to a full extent.
Dear God, I understand that you are a strong fortress for people who reserve their trust in you. Therefore, I call on you to defend my interest against the wish of the enemies. Subdue my foes, and give me upper hands over them. Let Satan and all his agents stumble in their evil imaginations. Meanwhile, I ask you to bless me, shield me, and give me peace that is beyond human comprehension. Let me live every day of my life in victory. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
