Refuge and Strength

19 05 2016

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. Psalms 46:1 NLT

Our Savior provides a safe place in the time of trouble.  It is a place of peace, protection and rest for our hearts and minds.  The stress and pressure of the season can leave us feeling tired and weary.  He knows and He cares about His children.  During prayer and meditation we can experience respite for our busy minds and burdened souls.  The Lord is our refuge.  In His presence we are rejuvenated with His strength, infused with His peace and surrounded by His love.  We are so thankful for the gifts of refuge, respite and rejuvenation that we have in God.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  This I declare about the Lord:  He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.

Psalm 91:1 -2  NLT

Stay Strong

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1 NLT

We have to stay connected to our source of strength to stay strong. The Lord is our strength and our refuge.  We can stay connected to Him through prayer, meditation, reading His Word and worship.  I need His strength to stand strong and to keep moving forward.  His strength empowers me to stand firm even when situations may be swirling around me.  He is our strength.  He is our refuge.  He is my strong tower.  I am thankful that we can go to Him, whenever we need to reenergized for the day ahead.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Psalm 18:10

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:1-4





A Safe Place to Be

Sun RaysGod, the one and only— I’ll wait as long as he says.

Everything I hope for comes from him, so why not?

He’s solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul,

An impregnable castle: I’m set for life.

My help and glory are in God —granite-strength and safe-harbor-God—

So trust him absolutely, people;

lay your lives on the line for him.

God is a safe place to be.

Psalm 62:5-8 MSG





My Rock

Arizona Hills by Lori 2012I love you, LORD; you are my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
and my place of safety.
I called on the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and he saved me from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3 NLT

The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress. We need a firm foundation for our lives and for our living. In Him, we live in safety. He is our fortress. The world offers a shifting landscape but the Lord provides firm footing and a safe place. No matter what we are facing, we can depend on Him. He is God. He is our strong tower, a place of refuge and a place of protection. We give honor and praise to our Heavenly Father for these blessings that surround us. We thank Him for guided steps and guided thinking. We thank Him for an inclined heart to His will and His ways. In His will, we are safe and protected. The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress.

I wait quietly before God,
for my victory comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will never be shaken.
Psalm 62:1-2 NLT

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

I am so thankful that we serve a living God that is available to us to provide refuge and protection. The world we live in today seemingly has so many pitfalls and dangers that seek to destroy our lives – our families, our marriages, our hope and our peace. But when we turn to the Lord, He provides refuge. We can go to Him in prayer, meditate on His word and lift our voices in praise and find ourselves enveloped in His presence. In this place of protection, we can experience peace, renewed spirit and strength and receive direction for the next step. Whatever we are facing, we can turn to our Heavenly Father – The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Psalm 46:1-3
