Stronghold

Today's reading: Psalm 9:1-20

In Psalm 9, David is proclaiming God's wonderful deeds--things He has done for David personally, and more comprehensive actions He has taken concerning people and nations. My favorite portion of this psalm is David's confident declaration found in verses 9-10.

"The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you."

Thank you, David, for the reminder of God's faithful protection and provision.

What does God being a "stronghold in times of trouble" mean to you? How have you experienced God being your stronghold? Tami
