Our Refuge

Quoted from my devotional—Thought of the Day.

Surely he will save you 

from the fowler’s snare 

and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers, 

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

— Psalm 91:3–4

Who do you run to? We might run to our parents in joy or sorrow. We might run to greet our friend, spouse, children, or parents after being gone for an extended period of time. We might run to a close friend for advice. There is One whom we should always run to.

We often find ourselves in a tough spot. It could be a decision looming ahead of us. It could be bills are due. It could be a relationship in trouble. It could be persecution for our faith. God is always there.

When we are feeling distraught, afraid, persecuted, or depressed, we should always seek God in prayer. Spend time with Him—read His Word. He is always there and will always get us through. Sure, we can seek our family and friends. In fact, God often uses our family and friends to be His hands or His voice. We must remember that God works through people around us.

Seek God to be your shelter, your protector during times of trouble. He will never leave you. Spend time with Him. He will grant you the protection, strength, courage, and peace you need.
