How God is the Christian's Mighty Fortress

The Bible describes seven ways in which the Lord works in preserving and sustaining the Christian.  I have found these verses to be helpful in reminding me of just how close God is to me even when I don't feel that He is close.   As a Christian you can have the confidence from these texts that you are not only "God called" but "God walled".

1. The Lord is always with us (Matthew 28:20)

2. The Lord is above us watching over us (Ephesians 1:20-21)

3. The Lord is beneath us holding us up (Deuteronomy 33:27)

4. The Lord is before us leading us as the Good Shepherd (John 10:4)

5. The Lord is behind us protecting us from our past (Exodus 14:19; Psalm 23:8)

6. The Lord is around us on every side (Psalm 34:7)

7. The Lord is within us, enabling us to live the Christian life (Galatians 2:20)
