12 # Short Commentary and Lesson from Psalm 46.1
Historically, a fortress was a place of protection for people during times of trouble. Often, during times of war, soldiers guarded these structures and gave the people inside a strong sense of security.
Psalm 46.1 tells us that God is “our mighty fortress.” In our times of trouble, we can run to him – he is our mightiest protection. God is our strongest security and the safest place to be.
