A Gentle Whisper -- Listening for the Voice of God Johnny Almond  

Mighty Fortress

The LORD is good. When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge. 
And he knows everyone who trusts in him.
But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood. 
He pursues his foes into the darkness of night.

NAHUM 1:7-8 NLT
 


When perplexing cares depress your mind, I will be your lilting song.
     Nagging doubts will not fragment you—I am your Blessed Assurance.

When you feel you cannot take another step, I will be your cheering coach.
     Life’s grueling marathon will not kill you—I am your Enduring Example.

When I flood earth with judgment, I will be your calm and quiet harbor.
     Surrounding troubles will not drown you—I am your Grand Support.

When all hell breaks loose, I will be your Unfailing Savior.
     Doomsday will not destroy you—I am your Heaven.

When the world has given up hope, I will be your melody of optimism.
     Despair will not overwhelm you—I am your Home.

When righteous indignation makes earth quake, I will be your Faithful Friend.
     Vindication against sin will not touch you—I am your Father.

When the last battle rages, I will be your ultimate victory.
     Clash of good and iniquity will not defeat you—I am your King.

When the night of evil overshadows the world, I will be your shining light.
     Attacks from demonic forces will not intimidate you—I am your Shield.

When the world is falling apart, I will be your solid rock.
     Fading tangibles will not devastate you—I am your Eternal Life.

When My Son returns to set the world right, I will be your bold courage.
     An interview with Me will not embarrass you—I am your Defense Counsel.

When heaven’s holy holocaust incinerates earth, I will be your storm shelter.
     Falling stars will not scare you—I am your Bright Morning Star.

When godless nations rage against the Messiah, I will be your hiding place.
