Who He Is

“The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; he defends me and keeps me safe.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭2‬ ‭

There is so much security wrapped up in God and demonstrated in this verse. Protector, strong fortress, protection, safe, protects, shield, and defends.

From Dictionary.com

These words, as nouns are who God is. These words as verbs represent what God does. As adjectives they refine Him. There is no reason for us to fear when we allow ourselves to be in His presence, security is who He is for us.
