A refuge is a place of safety. Psalm 46 tells us that God is our refuge. We are told not to fear. God is in charge and takes care of His people and Holy City.
Psalm 46:1-6 states:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.”
Is God our refuge? Do we go to Him in time of trouble? Do we believe He can protect us? Do we cast our fears upon the Lord?
If not, why not? God is in charge. He has the best interest of His children in mind.
Allow Him to be our refuge.
