Refuge

Psalm 25:29-30 "Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me because my hope is in you."
Let's face it, sin in any and all forms is dangerous. Sin has the ability to taint our relationships and our perspectives. It shapes our ideals and causes us to compromise our values and sacrifice our morals. It places us in danger: danger from the destruction at the end of sin's path, danger from the unbridled chaos, danger from the inevitable wounding, scarring, torturing consequences, all products of our concession to Satan's attacks against us.
Praise God that there is another option. He provides for us a place of refuge, a place where He, the Mighty Creator of All, acts as a shield around us. He guards us and keeps us from stumbling. He is our fortress, our deliverer. His is total protection, total restoration, total security. He is our God and in Him, we have no fear.
The Bible teaches us that we are soldiers and the battle we are engaged in is one of spiritual warfare. Satan, always on the offense, uses every weapon in his arsenal to get to us. But, as children of God, we are on the winning side. The battle is already won and we, we my friends, are protected, safe, whole and well. We have taken cover in the refuge of our God. He is all powerful and He is victorious. Praise God for the refuge He affords to His own!!

We did an entire youth rally on Refuge. It was a great success. There are so many scriptures about God being our refuge.
Good post.

I grew up in the Texas panhandle and what's called tornado alley. So I know about shelters, refuge and cellars... and I love the thought of God being that refuge during my spiritual storms...

thanks

Doesn't it say he hides us in the shelter of his wings? Very good post especially when we feel like the world is all over us, just knowing we are safe in Him.

Thanks, Neva

We don't all understand the concept of refuge because we are a free society. A study of the cities of refuge and what it means to be a refugee would be , in your words, cool.
