A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble(Psalm 46:1 NIV).
Let me base my weekly devotional message for this week on the history behind another popular hymn.

The hymn is titled A mighty fortress is our God! Martin Luther
(1483“1546) faced many years of trials and persecution after posting his
ninety-five theses on the door of Wittenberg's Castle Church in October 1517. During the years of the ensuing Protestant Reformation, Luther came to know the
gracious power of God's sheltering hand. He confidently stepped forward to
defend the truth he found in God's Word, despite excommunication from the Roman church, continual threats to his life and freedom, and times of intense
spiritual battle. In the comforting words of Psalm 46, Luther found the
inspiration for this hymn that would become the battle cry of the Protestant
Reformation. Many who suffered for their faith during that time found solid
comfort in Luther's words of faith and praise. A mighty fortress is our God!
God is indeed a mighty fortress to all who trust in Him. No matter
what one may be passing through, God is an ever-present help that will indeed
help and makes one to pass through the circumstance successfully.

Do you see God as your mighty fortress? Do you run to Him in your
distress? He promises in Psalm 50:16, ...call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you will honour me (NIV. See also Psalm 90:15; Jeremiah
33:3; Matthew 7:7; James 5:13; 1 Peter 5:7).

He is indeed the mighty fortress,
the ever-present help in trouble.

In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

* May all glory be unto Him,*
* in His mighty name, Amen.*
