God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. – Psalm 46:1
The Scripture makes very clear to us in this verse, that God, our God, the Lord, the Creator of the universe, he alone is where we find refuge! Refuge from our guilt, our sin, our inner struggle, our weaknesses, we can flee to him for refuge, for safety for comfort for consolation. Our God will have compassion on us when we turn to him for help. He will keep us safe, he will keep our souls safe and secure, in him we are all refugees looking to him for sanctuary. We go to him and plead for asylum from the tyranny of our own transgressions.
God gives us all the strength we need, in our weakness he is strong, we have no strength but for him, and him alone, and oh what a Savior, He rescues us when we are in the direst trouble, when we were at our worst, when we are beyond help and hope, he came to help us.
May he be our comfort and our rest, in Jesus name, Amen!
- Psalm 46:1
