Nahum 1:7 (NIV) ~ The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.
This past week has been one of those weeks that made me thankful & tired all at the same. If ya know what I mean…
We all have times of trouble. Times when we need rest. Nobody is exempt.
That’s what you call… LIFE.
But… As believers in Christ.. Authentic Followers of Christ, We have a SAFE REFUGE. The LORD.
Who do you run to when you are weary? Where do you find rest?
True rest. True peace. True comfort…
Is only found in HIM.
I keep thinking of these lyrics from Hillsong.. I Will Exalt You
My hiding place My safe refuge
My treasure Lord You are
My friend and King Anointed One
That’s. Who. HE. Is.
Psalm 32:7 (NLT) ~ For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory.
We only have to let go of our grip.. Our control.. And just rest. In Him.
Are you tired? Are you in pain of any kind? Are you just looking for a place to rest?
Maybe you’ve had a long week. A week of sickness or disappointments. Perhaps you are just plain worn out.
God knew that you would experience every single one of these emotions.
While we are commanded to do everything without grumbling or complaining.. We aren’t commanded to be without feelings.
He knew. He provided.. The Refuge. The Hiding Place.. It’s HIM.
I hope you will find your hiding place.. In Him.
Until Next Time,
