Been down with the flu, among other things.. getting back on track.
The Lord is our stronghold, shelter and shade. Which shows that troubles and trials inevitably come. But God is much stronger than the world or the enemy. Only, we need to be sure that we abide in Him. We are safe if we are in Him. We have joy in Him (a feast of rich food full of marrow, aged wine well refined, yes please). We have victory in Him – no death, no tears, no sin.
“O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.” (Isaiah 25:1 ESV)
