Jeremiah the Old Testament Prophet suffered much as he tried to turn
the people from their drifting ways and turn them back to God.
In sorrow he wrote:
Jeremiah: 16:19-23 Lord, you are my Strength and Fortress. My refuge in
the days of trouble.
Martin Luther centuries later, took comfort from these words as in his life he
suffered, loneliness, depression and personal illness. Then plague came to
his town and suffering everywhere intensified. He began to pray”
Lord, You are my Strength and Fortress. My Refuge in all these days of trouble. a-men.
From his pen poured the mighty hymn …A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD .
A mighty fortress is our God,
a Bulwark never failing.
Our Helper mid the flood of mortal ills prevailing.
This is the STAND and the faith that all Christians should be taking in our current world situation.
God is UNCHANGING. He eternally is the ROCK which will not break or bend to societies secular standards. a-men.
