Who’s your refuge?

    There are no atheists in fox holes. That’s what they say. Of course, when the chips are down, people cry out to God for help. But where is their Creator at any other time? Do the worldly believe they’re getting by in this life on their own laurels? Or that life is a random game of chance to be gambled upon?

The worldly panaceas offering help from the cares and burdens are, for the unsaved, the first place they look for relief from the pain of living. For the children of God, the ones Christ calls his brethren, our solace is met at the cross.

When you rise in the morning or lie down at night, the struggles that plague you have only one solution; it’s found in the arsenal of the Master Physician.

  “Because You have been my help, therefore, in the shadow of Your wings, I will rejoice” ~ Psalm 63:7

The world is a battlefield for control of your mind and heart. The combat skirmishes will always be here until we’re promoted to heaven, but there is assurance that in Him, your battles are already won.

Whether it physical, emotional, or mental pain that take precedence and attempt to sabotage your peace, rejoice in the Lord and count it all joy. Why? You have the Lord! Praise Him through the pain and watch and wait on what the Lord can do.
