Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – January 31, 2020
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him. Psalm 2:12
Outside of Christ we are refugees in need of a refuge. Our soul seeks asylum in Almighty God. Our spirit is on a search for security and peace. It is refuge in God that we want deep within our innermost desires. Otherwise we wander around earth untethered to truth. Away from heaven we are refugees. We need a secure place and Jesus is our sanctuary.
Even if your faith is as slender as a spider’s thread you can still trust in Jesus. The object of your faith matters more than the amount of your faith. His refuge is not just reserved for the robust of faith, it is especially available to those of us who are flailing away in faithless fear. We have lost our way and we need a wise weigh station to map out our faith. It is in refuge with Him that we are blessed with clarity and conviction. The Spirit is our shelter.
“I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust” (Psalm 91:2).
He is our refuge when hope seems extinct. He is our refuge when financial requirements are ravishing our resources. He is our refuge when people we depend on are nowhere to be found. He is our refuge when health issues hound our heart. He is our refuge when fear knocks at the door and courts our courage. He is our refuge when our marriage hangs in the balance. He is our refuge when work pressures pulsate in our mind and awaken us at night. He is our refuge when all seems to be going wrong. He is our refuge when all seems to be going right. God is our refuge.
We are blessed when we find refuge with our Creator. The Almighty aids us with wisdom and understanding when we take the time to listen to His instruction. Our prayer over His Word provides a ton of illuminating insight. The place of refuge holds up truth and casts out lies. Stability is another blessing from resting in His refuge. Our world rocks around us. But we have a rock in our Lord. He is not a suspension bridge that sways with the winds of the world’s unpredictability. Nothing about our Savior is shaky.
“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
Heavenly Father, I seek refuge under the wings of your tender love, in Jesus’ name, amen.
How can I take refuge in God and His loving kindness? What results from resting in Him?
