The Great Fortress (Psalm 59:17)

O my Strength, I will sing praises to you,
    for you, O God, are my fortress,
    the God who shows me steadfast love

It took many years and probably many lives to finish the Great Wall of China. It was worth it because aside from serving its purpose to protect the country from invaders, it was also chosen as one of the Great Wonders of the World.

Are you aware that we have a great wall to protect us from our enemies, temptations and transgressions? He is our Great Fortress, He who shields us from diseases, disasters, accidents and wickedness. He who protects us from evil. Awesome is our God whose steadfast love endures forever.

Though we may not repay God’s goodness exactly the same as Christ did, it will give Him happiness if we obey His words. Other than that, we should give Him the highest honor and praise which He deserves. So open your mouth and let us sing praises to God almighty for all the things He has done and for showing us the Lord’s undying love at the Cross.
