Psalm 18:2 “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” The ever present God is our fortress, a source of strength and cheer. With Him we can meet life’s challenges triumphantly.
Mark 1:2-3 “As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way, the voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,’”
Jesus brings deliverance in the moments of our deepest need. As people with prepared hearts, we can ask, seek, and wait with expectation that rescue—redemption—is coming!
