No matter what happens in our lifetimes, our defense should remain strong in times of trouble. Our defenses are not the defenses of any armed force, which in the world is necessary from time to time. Our defense and safety rest solely in the promises and assurances of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Times will get difficult in this world. Conflict is always with us in some way, whether as individuals or in some part of the world. Conflict brings tension, but tension should never become fear or the inability to enjoy this beautiful world God has provided for us.
Jesus is our strength, our rock, our salvation.
“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.” Psalm 18:2
