When facing stormy weather we seek refuge. Somewhere protected. Somewhere safe.
When facing a life storm it is the same.
In several of the Psalms the Lord is referred to as our refuge.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2
If you make the Most High your dwelling–even the LORD, who is my refuge... Psalm 91:9
But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. Psalm 94:22
I cry to you, O LORD; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.” Psalm 142:5
He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. Psalm 144:2
No matter what situation we are faced with, He is there for our refuge.
“In you, LORD, we have taken refuge; let us never be put to shame; deliver us in your righteousness. Turn your ear to us, come quickly to our rescue; be our rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save us. Since you are our rock and our fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide us. Keep us free from the trap that is set for us, for you are our refuge. Into your hands we commit our spirit; deliver us, LORD, our faithful God. In Jesus name amen.” Psalm 31:1-5
