We live very near Arundel in West Sussex. Arundel has a beautiful castle! Castles are fascinating! We have a very romantic idea of what castles should be like in our minds, perhaps because of fairy tale books or Disney movies. Castles were built to protect the land at different times over the course of history. They were strongholds! A fortress where people could find shelter, feel secure and protected!. A castle has thick stone walls and strategically positioned towers to help to defend the people againds their enemies! It is a mighty structure built to stand grand on the land! It can be seen from a far off distance!
God is like a castle! He is mighty and powerful! Stands above all gods as the KING, the only true King. He offers us protection, security. He loves us and defends us against the enemy. He stands strong for all eternity! His love can be seen and felt all over the world, even by those who do not fear Him. He saves us and helps us to be strong in our day-to-day lives.
We can always trust Him and call upon Him to keep us safe!
