Sunday Reflection...

When I was in England recently I saw two mighty fortresses - Windsor Castle and the Tower of London.  

They reminded me of David's words in Psalm 18:2  "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge."  [NIV]

Martin Luther wrote a timeless hymn conveying the same thoughts:

 "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God."

A mighty fortress is our God,
A bulwark never failing:
Our helper He, amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and pow'r are great,
And, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing,
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God's own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth is His name.
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle

May God bless your week!
