(Listen to an audio version of this post at this link.)
But it feels like you’re out in the sea without an anchor. Times of trouble simply puts you in a state of “limbo.”
The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble (Psa 9:9).
It’s a promise that the Lord is a sure stronghold for those in trouble. When there is no one to care, when everyone seems to be your enemy, God will be your stronghold.
As a stronghold, God becomes your protector. When you are attacked from every side, God will be your covering. The weight of the attack may be heavy, but it won’t crush you. It may even feel like you’re going to die, but you will be rejoicing in the land of the living. God is your stornghold in times of trouble.
