When you are surrounded by the Lord you get to truly see why it is so good to have Him as a fortress. Even as cities were protected by walls, there is something about being protected by the Lord. Protected from outside elements that seek to cause harm, but as well as that protected within by the integrity of the protector.
Left to the subtly insidious ways of evil could even lead the righteous to doing things that are not so … righteous. But thank God for the protection. Thank God that He is a mighty fortress and as we cry out to do good to all those that serve Him, so the integrity of righteousness within the protection of the Lord will stand.
For His Name’s Sake
C. L. J. Dryden
