TAKE REFUGE IN HIM
Whenever we need shelter, we can find it in God. God covers us under His care. He is a refuge in a time of storm. He covers us when the winds of life are blowing upon our backs. We can find the peace that only He can give to calm the storm. Let me add, if we live long enough, we will need to find shelter from life’s raging winds. Life’s problems have a way of causing us misery and pain. Thanks be unto God, we can find the strength we need in Him. Psalm 34:8 is our scriptural reference today and reads in this manner:
“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!”
The psalmist shares his testimony throughout this chapter and speaks of what he knows firsthand. He writes, “I sought the Lord and He answered me.” He encourages the people to praise God and exalt His name together. He says that the angels of the Lord encamped around Him. The psalmist takes refuge in the Lord. He tells the people to taste and see how good the Lord is. Speaking from his heart, he has found himself blessed by God. He cries out to the Lord from the depths of his soul and the Lord delivered him. He speaks about God’s care for His people. What a glorious invitation. May you take refuge in Him today, for He cares for you. He loves you with a love that will never let you go. Make no mistake about it. When you come to Him, you will be safe in His arms.
