Psalm 31: 1-5, 15-16 v 2 “Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.”
In the Lord I have taken refuge. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.” Since you are my rock and fortress, guide me. Into your hands I commit my spirit. Deliver me and save me.
I am away from home and that means I have a book to read, not the bible, that I access on my laptop, just something that will entertain me. I am currently reading Iron Lace by Emile Richards. She describes being in a tornado, and as the winds and water rise around them, they look for higher ground and safety in a well-built house. Refuge in a time of trial, something strong like rock and well built to stand invasion like a fortress. Taking refuge in the Lord is the same for me. Asking the question when stressed “what would Jesus do?” Looking at bible verses such as this one, talking with friends who are believers, praying, and listening as I go about my day for circumstances that seem odd, make me stop, guide me. If you take refuge in Him, then He will save you.
Prayer: Heavenly Father who I trust more each day to guide me , thank you for being my fortress and my rock and into your hands I commit my spirit. Amen
