Psalm 144:2–He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.
God is so many things to us. Several of the things mentioned here have to do with people our protection and strength. God is the One who is to fight the battles in our lives for us. He is all that we need to be able to stand up for the things of God. Even with knowing that He is our protector, often we have difficulty making the decision to stand firm. Will we rest in God’s protection today, knowing that He loves us and that because of His protection, we can be faithful to everything He has commanded us to do today.
Father, I will rest in You and Your protection today. I know that You are faithful and will be my strength and protection in every situation. I will not try to build my own protection, but will instead rest in Yours. Give me the commitment to obey You and rely on You for everything I need going forward.
