Blessed be the Lord my Rock,
Who trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle—
My lovingkindness and my fortress,
My high tower and my deliverer,
My shield and the One in whom I take refuge
In these dark days, the only light I have is the Lord Jesus Christ. When I'm surrounded by a cruel world full of lies, I can rely on Jesus. Trust in Him is my shield; it is my high tower of strength when I need refuge. I need to learn to wear trust like armor; pick it up, put it on, sleep in it, bathe in it, swallow it, and keep it in my heart always.
It may not always be easy to trust what I can't see and can't always feel, but I choose to trust that He is in control! Submitting to Him is how I find freedom in a world that wants to bind me, chain me, and keep me silent, because freedom comes from trust.
