“The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.” (Nahum 1:7 NIV)
It is a blessed thing to find refuge in this turbulent world. There seem to be more people against you instead of foryou on any given day or situation. And the truth is that many people seem to be looking for the edge to get over on someone or some situation. The world is indeed a dangerous arena to face. We need a place to run and hide and find solace from the storms that engulf our world. Indeed we must discover this little “secret refuge” or we continue to face the waves alone and end up battered and wounded…
Do you want to be a friend or a foe of God? Only a fool would choose the latter. Notice the key in seeking the refuge of God is that we trust Him… If we have some little (or big) area of our life in which we have failed to give it totally to God we find ourselves missing one of the most wonderful blessings of God – refuge in His arms…
Enjoy the refuge God so freely offers and take a respite from this world. But don’t forget to tell your friends of this wonderful and blessed place to hide from the troubles of the world – at least for a little while to recharge!
