“The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalms 9:9-10
How does this verse resonate with you? Is the LORD your refuge? With all that has been going on with this pandemic, have you found the Lord to be a sanctuary for you?
As true as these verses are, the reality is that a lot of times we find shelter in other things whether it be food, movies, video games, sports, books, or even friends and family. David, although certainly not perfect, consistently found refuge in the Lord. What was his secret? He was a man after God’s own heart. Regardless of how bad things got or how far he fell, David always got back up and pursued the Lord.
Spend some time with Him in confession about the ways you have run to other things instead of Him. Ask Him to help you to learn how to take refuge in Him. The Lord won’t forsake you, and He longs to be your sanctuary.
