God Is My… (Psalms), 12

~ God Is My Stronghold ~

Introduction  ~  Previously from July 16, 2017 through January 6, 2019 ALN posted a series of 60 posts of “Jesus is…,” and now we look exclusively at who “God is…” from the Book of Psalms.  While not a complete list these posts occur are in the same order they are in the Psalms. 

Passage  ~  “I will love You, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies” (Psalm 18:1-3).     

Significance  ~  Strongholds can be good or bad.  Some have developed strongholds of bad habits.  In this case the reference is to a positive stronghold.  One of the potential strongholds we are given is the Word of God.  “Your word I have hidden in my heart,
that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:11). 

Comment  ~  We have the example of this in action in Christ’s three-fold temptation in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-11).  In each of Satan’s three temptations Christ rebutted him with a quotation of the Word of God.
