“For you have been a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.”
The storms of life are the unavoidable challenges, hardships, and trials that come our way. And just as storms in nature can be fierce and unpredictable, life’s storms can be equally devastating. That’s why at the very first rumble of thunder, we need to run to God in search of shelter. For He is our dependable refuge. A safe haven shielding us from the raging elements. Turning to God in times of trouble, shows a belief in His unwavering love, sovereignty, and wisdom. And faith in His promise to never leave or forsake us. His presence offers refuge from the turbulence around us. And when we rest in His strength, we find comfort, guidance, and a source of inner peace. The kind of peace that empowers us to weather the storms with resilience and hope. And one that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, we are never alone. God is there welcoming us into His rest. He is our mighty Fortress of peace, light, and security in the midst of life’s storms.
