The word for this week is Refuge. Refuge is defined as: Shelter or protection from danger or distress. (Merriam-Webster)
“God is our Refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalms 46:1-3 (NIV)
“The Lord is good, A strength and stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows (He recognizes, cares for, and understands fully) those who take refuge and trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7 (AMP)
The bible tells us that we can expect to have some troubles in this world, and to face occasional adversity. But we as believers can rejoice because Jesus has overcome this world. Halleluiah!!! There is a lot going on in our Nation right now, but we do not have to stress, or to fear. We can take refuge in God. He will shelter and protect us from danger or distress. Whatever your challenges are right now, don’t worry. God is a Stronghold in the day of trouble. Just make your requests known to God. He hears and He will answer your prayers.
