Finding Refuge

When you need a refuge, a safe place, where would you go?

Refuge du Maupas

We all need somewhere safe, somewhere we can go and be secure when all is raging around us, when we are lost or far from home.  A place of security to rest.

Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16

The Lord Is My Fortress

91 Live under the protection
of God Most High
and stay in the shadow
of God All-Powerful.
Then you will say to the Lord,
“You are my fortress,
my place of safety;
you are my God,
and I trust you.”

The Lord Most High
is your fortress.
Run to him for safety,
10     and no terrible disasters
will strike you
or your home.

11 God will command his angels
to protect you
wherever you go.
12 They will carry you
in their arms,
and you won’t hurt your feet
on the stones.
13 You will overpower
the strongest lions
and the most deadly snakes.

14 The Lord says,
“If you love me
and truly know who I am,
I will rescue you
and keep you safe.
15 When you are in trouble,
call out to me.
I will answer and be there
to protect and honor you.
16     You will live a long life
and see my saving power.”

God is a safe place.  A haven from the storm.  He will hold us in his arms and keep us safe.

Lord

I come to you,

for safety,

for security,

to be held tight by you,

to be saved by you.

Thank you for your arms of love,

comfort,

hope

and security
