Refuge and Fortress

Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes finding a place of refuge from the world’s cares.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 91:2 (KJV), “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

What the Verse Means:

Notice how the writer of the Psalm begins with a general statement followed by a personal application: “I will say of the Lord,” and then follows with “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

As Believers in Christ Jesus, we have a personal God who is there for us.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • • Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that you are God, the one true and living God.
  • • Lord, you are my refuge.
  • • God, you are my fortress.
  • • To all the world I proclaim you are my God and in you will I trust.
  • • I pray you to place in my family’s heart the desire to be in church to worship you this Sunday.
