God is our stronghold. It’s a truth spoken throughout God’s Word. A stronghold is a place that’s been so fortified, it is impenetrable. These days, we might call them bunkers or safe rooms. Historically, they were forts, often carved out of a mountainside. Strongholds were the area of last resort when a kingdom was being besieged.
They were self-sustaining and people could live there for years while they waited out the attacks of the enemy. It was the safest place one could be, and once inside, they had little to fear from outside forces. And so it is with our stronghold, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are never safer than when we place our life within His.
