The Eternal God Is Your Refuge
The Lord never promised that there would not be any storms in our life, but he has promised that we can be sheltered from the storm. In times of trouble the eternal God is our everlasting refuge. Whatever our trouble he will always be there for us.
When I think of the hope in this passage I get a picture of a small child running into his father’s arms crying, “Daddy, daddy, help me,” and the father picking up his young one with the promise, “Don’t worry, you’re safe now.”
In the middle of our darkest trials, when there seems no hope he wraps us in his love and promises, “You’re safe now.” When we have gone through a great loss his comforting love surrounds us with the promise, “I’ll never leave you nor forsake you.” When we are sick with a sickness that seems unto death he strengthens us with his embrace as he promises, “Though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will go with you.”
When we surrender our life to Christ we become hidden in him as if we had found a secret shelter in a storm. It is then, when we are hidden in Christ, that he will drive away our enemies. Our hope is in the promise that he will always be there for us. When trials come just run to Daddy cry, "Help me!"
Prayer: Lord, grant me the confidence to surrender myself to your care and protection, especially when I am in great distress over my circumstances. Drive away from me the enemy of my soul. In Jesus name, amen.
