“In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.” Isaiah 26:1 NIV
Isaiah’s words encouraged the people of Judah during the dark time while their enemies laid siege to the land. God would provide a bright future of triumph and safety through a strong and fortified city. God’s people would sing this song of praise and trust in God both during the dark time and during the future victory celebration. Though our world seems overwhelmingly dark and filled with turmoil, trials, and troubles, there is light and deliverance through Jesus Christ, the Savior and Lord.
Lord Jesus, I lift my voice in a song of praise to You, my God. In the midst of trouble, You are my fortified stronghold, my refuge, my strength, and my salvation.
