God Is a Refuge
“A refuge provides protection or shelter from danger or hardship. It is a haven or sanctuary, a place where one may go for help, relief, or escape. Who among us does not seek a secure refuge from the daily harassments and stresses of life? There are many false refuges: the over-involvement in recreation or hobbies, the hiding of oneself in work activities, the single-minded pursuit of acquiring possessions, and the losing of self in drug-dependency. These are some major ways that we, as a society, seek comfort. But there is only one refuge that offers personal, eternal protection and provision. ‘There is a place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God.’ ‘For my eyes are toward Thee, O GOD, the LORD; in Thee I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless’ Psalm 141:8
