Life has a way of reminding us that we are not smart enough, strong enough or clever enough to get ourselves out of a dilemma that we or others had something to do with creating. Everyone needs the security of knowing that when we get into a troubling situation that there is someone more powerful and able to help when we’ve exhausted our resources and stand powerless, in need of intervention. God is our refuge and He always has a good plan for our lives when we place our trust in Him.
“He will send from heaven and save me; He will put to shame him who tramples on me. God will send out His steadfast love and His faithfulness.” (Psalm 57:3)
My world suddenly changed a couple of days ago when the unexpected happened. I was reminded that God is my refuge. He is my strong tower that cannot be shaken. He is my protection from danger and steadfast love, faithful to meet my constant need for provision. My sure foundation when everything around me is changing, He is my Rock and the lifter of my head.
“O my Strength, I will watch for You, for You O God, are my fortress.”
“My God in His steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look in triumph on my enemies.”
God is our refuge and our strength, trust in Him to bring triumph over your enemies!
