This scripture gives a choice to believers. If we live in the way of the Lord, the world will be a safe place for us. It will be our stronghold, our fortress. However, if we go against His way, then it will lead to destruction in our lives. If we live His way, He is faithful to protect us. If we don’t, then He is released from the obligation. The choice is up to us.
And we pray:
Lord, I pray that I continue to find my refuge in You and not in the wicked things of the earth. Help me not to dwell in iniquity, for I know that it leads to my destruction. Thank You for being my Stronghold, my Protector and my Refuge. Amen.
