But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
You are my strength, I sing praise to you;
you, God, are my fortress,
my God on whom I can rely.
Psalm 59: 16-17
There are many things that try to hold us down. Fear. Doubt. Shame. Toxic relationships. Regret. Exhaustion. COVID19. And there are probably just as many false remedies that beg for our attention; quick fixes that “promise” instant relief. They most often come with compromises that only add to the burdens from which we so desperately want to be freed.
We celebrate Easter as the moment in history that God made it as clear as possible: nothing will stop the power of God’s love for us. Easter is a season that extends into every day of our lives. So, when we are in need of strength today – from the smallest to greatest task in front of us: there is a steadfast source that will never let us down. The God of heaven is our fortress and our strength. Tap into that power…make it your morning song.
“Lord come quickly to help us; you are our strength and shield.”
