Day 40 – The Ultimate Safe Place

Learning to deal with a chronic illness is realizing as Believers in Jesus Christ that we have an ultimate safe place.

As we face chronic illness, we need to realize the ultimate safe place for us is in Jesus Christ. Let us never forget that Jesus is our rock, fortress, and deliverer.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 18:2 (KJV), “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”

What the Verse Means:

King David uses these different names of God to show that God has many ways to help. This is seen in contrast to the wicked have many ways of hurting people.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Heavenly Father, I thank you for being my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer.
  • Lord Jesus, I trust in you. You are my strength. You are my buckler that is my shield.
  • Thank you for being the horn of my salvation and my high tower.
