Watching hurricane Maria destroy parts of the West Indies, and earthquakes decimate Mexico, the word was â€œtake refuge where ever you canâ€. My question to you today is â€“ where do you take refuge when the storms of life come? Where do you go for comfort and safety? Some people find it easy to turn to their friends, their job, alcohol or even a bowl of ice cream. Before you turn to anything turn to God. He wants us to take refuge in Him. He longs to protect us, defend us and give us His strength. We serve a good God, and when we take refuge in Him, He will pour out His abundant blessing in our lives.
Today, taste and see that the Lord is good, and His promises are true. When you turn to God, you will find rest and refuge for your soul in the Bibleâ€™s promises. Lean on Him when youâ€™re not strong, no matter what storm you may be facing, come to the Father. He will give you His peace and strength as you take refuge in Him.
â€œTaste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!â€(Psalm 34:8, ESV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I open my heart to You, please be my refuge during my storms. Thank You for Your peace and rest, and for showing me Your hand of blessing as I take refuge in You. God, help me today while Iâ€™m going through some hard times. I hold on to You with all I have, trusting in Your promises, in Jesusâ€™ name! Amen.
