Psalm 91: Refuge

Posted by on Nov 28, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

What in this broken world do you most fear?

We don’t have to look far or long to find ominous reminders that much in our little corner of the universe isn’t right … natural disaster, poverty, corruption, terrorism, disease, betrayal, humiliation, injustice and death. All of it comes with a cost we hope never comes due at our address.

Is there such a thing as a “safe place?” Can our trembling hearts find refuge in the face of the unknown? Yes!

When our fear finds faith anchored in the faithfulness of God, we are delivered – sometimes immediately and always eventually – from all that threatens to undo us. Our heavenly Father is our fortress and the vast bulwark of His love surrounding us is impenetrable.

We will undoubtedly suffer loss in this life. But none of it will be outside of God’s sovereign care nor beyond His good intentions. He is our hope and He alone can turn our mourning into dancing with promises of ultimate protection.

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalm 34:19
