that God's Spirit lives in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16
The National Cathedral in Washington D.C.
Then this strange sight:
A tower, surrounded by scaffolding.
Several years ago, the cathedral was weakened by an earthquake and the scaffolding supports it so men can repair and strengthen it.
I looked at it and thought of my body.
The temple of the Holy Spirit.
Earthquakes come into my life and weaken my faith.
Circumstances shake my foundation.
- The death of a loved one.
- Financial worries.
Then the tower reminds me.
He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress,
I will not be shaken. Psalm 62:6
He is my fortress.
He supports my life with His grace and love.
He tenderly repairs the weak places.
He strengthens my faith through His faithfulness.
I might be shaking - He is my sure foundation.
I might stumble - He upholds me with His grace.
I might be hurting - He repairs my heart with His love.
He alone is my Rock.
He alone is my salvation.
He alone is my fortress.
I am learning to trust Him so I will not be shaken.
How has God been your strong fortress during an earthquake?
