Anchoring Truths from God's Word

Our Strong Defense

Throughout this world, there are many different types of defense systems that are used for protection. Our country has the military and navy, banks have surveillances and safes, and even our homes have locks, cameras, and motion sensors that alert the homeowners and the police. Defense systems are meant to keep you and your belongings safe while keeping out the enemy. The Israelite army was up against Goliath, who seemed impossible to defeat, but David looked above the stature of Goliath to God for help in defeating the giant. That same God who helped Isreal from the beginning of defeating the Egyptians is also our defender in our time of need. Throughout his psalms, David always saw God as his defender against Goliath, King Saul, and men who rose up against him, even his own son. God never failed him, and He will never fail us. God will protect you and defend you, but you first need to trust Him and let Him guide your steps (Romans 8:31 & Psalm 37:23). Don't have any disbelief that God can be your rock and refuge in defense in your time of need.
