The LORD is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
Asking for help sometimes can be a defeating feeling. But our Lord promises to strengthen you if you run to him not defeat you. Just like we would do for our own kids. If they came to us with a problem we would want to help them. If they needed protection, we would spring into action without hesitation.
Protecting our kids is a very natural trait. Dad’s want to protect. As kids we played various games to help protect someone or something. War games, police and robbers, autobots and decpticons, you name it. We have a natural yearning to protect.
I don’t have to sugar coat how dangerous this world is for any of you. Trying to protect our families is extremely important these days. But where are you drawing your strength to protect your family? There are many different paths to gain strength, but what path are you on for strength?
If you’ve accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you have a refuge. You have a strong tower where you can be protected from your enemies. No matter what that enemy is, anger, job loss, divorce, death, sickness, bitterness, you name it. He is the refuge that gives us strength.
As dad’s we want to be the greatest protector in our kid’s lives. But always remember that in order for us to be the protector we want to be, we must first learn from our heavenly protector first.
But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
Gain from his strength Dad’s!
