Micah 4:7-8 (NKJV)

I will make the lame a remnant,

And the outcast a strong nation;

So the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion

From now on, even forever.

And you, O tower of the flock,

The stronghold of the daughter of Zion,

To you shall it come,

Even the former dominion shall come,

The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”

Thank You, Father God, for You are our strong tower.  How we falter when we believe we have become strong.  I turn to You, O Lord, and ask you to reign and be my strong tower.

I flee to the top of the Strong Tower

My shelter

Wicked comes to ruin

Righteous stand firm



Reign Lord, now and forever

In Jesus name.  Amen
