It wasn’t long ago that we visited St. Augustine, FL. It’s a town full of history with claims of being the oldest city within the United States. With both protection and defense, Castillo de San Marcos still stands as the 17th century Spanish stone fortress with views of the St. Augustine Inlet. Here battles were fought. Here, people were secure and safe.
Seeing this historical site also reminded me of Proverbs 18:10, NLT, “The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.” No matter what rages on around you, the Lord is your strength, your tower of safety and protection. You can also be secure with promises of safety and refuge from Psalm 91:2, NLT. “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.”
I trust that is your testimony. Jesus is your strength, your fortress, refuge, and safe place no matter what happens in your life. You are always secure and safe in His presence.
