Daily Bible Reading for Sunday, February 18th:

God’s Refuge


In a previous post, we briefly considered the outcome of whether or not we include God in our lives.

In Psalm 143 we find David hidden in a cave, feeling as low as any man can go. He found himself alone and without the earthly comforts of family and home. If we routinely wait until we are in desperate need to go to God, we might find ourselves in that same darkness and afraid to go forward. Using David’s example we see the way to handle those times of need:

  • He asks God to help (Psalm 142:1-2)
  • He tells God how overwhelmed he is (Psalm 142:3-4)
  • He identifies God as his refuge (Psalm 142:5-7)

We need to make a habit out of talking to God. When we do, we will start to find ourselves in dark times less often. Refuge in ourselves or in the world will always fail too soon.
