As some despair has come out concerning our nation I was reminded of these scriptures.  I hope that they bless you as they have blessed me.

Psalms 9 (AMP)

9
The Lord also will be a refuge and a high tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation).
   
10
And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God's Word and the right of their necessity].


Psamls 61 (AMP)

2
From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].
   
3
For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me, a strong tower against the adversary.
   
4
I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; let me find refuge and trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!


Proberbs 18 (AMP)

10
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.

I have been leaning on God as my Strong Tower for the last couple of months.  That song means a lot to me.  Thanks Sarah.

Thank you Sarah - that is very timely - it seems the worse thing get - the more we try to do it by ourselves. We need to be encouraged to turn it over to the Master.
