Day 9 – Fortress

Part of learning to live with a chronic illness is relying on God.

For the person and their family that are living with a chronic illness, they need never to be ashamed to rely on the Lord God. He is their rock and fortress.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 71: 3 (KJV), “Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.”

What the Verse Means:

God is here for us all the time. We can always go to and rely on God. The Lord God is our rock and fortress.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Heavenly Father, we rely on and thank you for being here for us.
  • Lord Jesus, we pray that we will continually place our confidence and trust in You.
  • Thank you for being our rock and our fortress.
