What does it mean to take refuge in The LORD? It simply means His is our safe place! There are many passages that uses the words take refuse such as Psalm 16:1,34:8, 46:1, 52:7, 2 Samuel 22:23 and more).
What do you do when trouble is invading your normal and knocking you around and there seems there is no way out?
Praying and seeking God, if you are a child of God, He will never leave you hanging or suffering alone. He will be right there and in those dark hours/times in our lives we can be reassured that when we seek and look to Him, He will ALWAYS keep us safe from any and everything trying to take us out.
“Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.””
Psalms 16:1-2 ESV
In our sorrow we tend to be emotional and overwhelmed with many things and we don’t know how to handle it or what to do. All I can give and tell is what is working for me. Since loosing my dad I have had many emotions that I suppressed over time and never dealt with. His death caused me to reflect on my life and how much it can cost if holding onto things that can cripple us. I have spent day in and out crying out to God and seeking Him and writing down emotions I feel, and define them and use scriptures to combat emotions that can cause me to sin against God. Not all emotions are unpleasant but they get defined too and scriptures are paired with them. If you are hurting from the trials of life, I pray that you will seek God and look to Him for guidance. I promise you He will not fail, His grace and mercy are there. I am growing and learning about His faithfulness and love. I am thankful for Jesus who died to reconcile us back to God and thankful for The Holy Spirit for being a leader and guider into all truth just like Jesus promised He would do.
