God is our Refuge

2 Kings 17; 2 Chronicles 28; Psalms 46; James 3 

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea…”

Psalm 46:1, 2

What refuge is really trustworthy when our world is collapsing around us?

Civil wars have spread from country to country; natural disasters have wrecked cities and regions; economic downturns have cost people their life savings. In the midst of these calamities, God’s invitation continues for us to find our refuge and strength in him. He has promised to be an ever-present help in trouble. God’s Spirit fills those who give their lives for him. God’s angels surround those who belong to God’s kingdom. In the midst of uncertainty, or even disaster, God’s people respond out of hope and love because God is with them.

Why wait for a crisis to call out to God?

We can find his strength in his presence today if we call out to him and give him our lives.

“Lord Jesus, you are my refuge and strength this day. I will not fear for you are with me.”
