“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes” (Psalm 118:9).
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Psalm 118To a baby girl, it’s her mother’s arms.
To a mom, it’s being surrounded by a loving family.
To a musician, it’s a quiet, secluded room to write in.
To an artist, it’s a remote mountain waterfall.
To a lost lamb, it’s in the safekeeping of his shepherd.
To King David in his boyhood, it was the big, starry sky above. As a young man, it was an unknown, rocky cave hiding him safely from an angry King Saul. In his latter years, it was his walled city.
Refuge … it’s our safe place; it’s a Christian’s place of security, provision, and shelter.
Everybody needs a refuge. Without one, life can be a frightening experience.
In an ever deepening, intimate, abiding relationship with Jesus, a Christ-follower who stays in fellowship with “the Great Shepherd of the Sheep” is never without a refuge. Never!
