Take Refuge in Christ – Old Testament Tuesday

psalm5_11“But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
—Psalm 5:11

Life is full of difficulties.  It may be financial struggles, marriage trouble, the loss of a loved one, or trying to come to grips with a horrific event like this past Sunday.  When the world comes crashing down around you, where do you turn?  To whom do you run?

God invites us to run to Him, to take refuge in Him.  He promises to spread His protection over those who look to Him in faith that you may rejoice in Him and be glad.  Singing for joy even in the midst of our struggles.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for always being there for me.  When troubles come, help me to turn to You, trusting that You will protect me and care for me.

Amen
