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




My Present Help

30 01 2015

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1Lifted hands

He is my refuge.  In the midst of a storm, He is a place where I can find peace and protection.  A refuge is a place of safety, when trouble seems to surround me.  In Him, I can find a place of covering for my heart and mind in every situation.  I thank you Lord for you are my refuge.

He is my strength.  His strength is perfected in my weakness.  I can look to Him for the added strength I need to face what is ahead.  He gives me the renewed will and power to face the challenges of the day.  I thank you God for your perfect strength.

He is my present help.  The Lord provides help that is complete.  His blessings provide for every need.  He supplies all of my needs.  Healing, deliverance, salvation and guidance are all available to His children.  I thank God for His present, right now help.

I am seeking and praising You for your refuge, strength and present help today and for the days ahead.

Surely God is my help;  the Lord is the one who sustains me. 

Psalm 54:4
