MFM Daily Devotional 2 July 2023 MESSAGE
The Bible says God is our fortress. Your pastor probably says so too while he preaches. But what do you say? And what confidence do you have in what you say? What convictions drive your knowledge of God being your fortress?
Beloved, just like it takes a lot of time and energy to build physical fortresses, knowing and trusting God as your fortress takes time too. It is not about reciting Bible verses, but when challenges show up, you begin to panic and shout. You must take time to know God by studying and doing His word. Practise what you see in the word; start by taking little steps, and as you grow, you will begin to accomplish greater things.
Psalms 18:20-23 says, “The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me. I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.”
As you grow in God, your confidence in Him and in His word will be strengthened. And when challenges come, your faith will not waiver, because you will know beyond every doubt that you are in God, a fortress of peace.
