God is your Refuge
God is your Refuge – Knowing God as our refuge enables us to trust Him more freely. We need not fear situations or people who threaten our well-being, whether in a physical or spiritual sense. There is no situation we will ever face that is out of God’s control, so the best place to be, always, is right with Him. “The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Bible, Proverbs 18:10).
Be encouraged! No matter how strong or powerful your problems may be, Lord will give you the strength to face them with courage and confidence. He will be with you like a mighty warrior (Bible, Jeremiah 20:11). He is great and mighty in power (Bible, Jeremiah 10:6). Therefore, make Him as your refuge and come under the shadow of His wings. In the greatness of the name of the Lord, you will live securely and find your peace.
No matter what your circumstance, the safest place to be is always in the center of God’s will. He promises to be your refuge: “‘never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is your helper; you should not afraid. What can man do to me?’” (Bible, Hebrews 13:5–6).
You must keep trust in Lord and accept the truth- God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up, and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble.
There is a river of joy flowing through the City of our God—the sacred home of the God above all gods. God himself is living in that City; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay his help. The nations rant and rave in anger—but when God speaks, the earth melts in submission and kingdoms totter into ruin.
The Commander of the armies of heaven is here among us. He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us. Come, see the glorious things that our God does, how he brings ruin upon the world, and causes wars to end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon. “Stand silent! Know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation in the world.”
