Reflection on Eternal Refuge

Beloved, the faithfulness of God has always been there throughout history. David in the book of Psalms is a testament to that.

In Psalm 91:2, we read:

I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.’

In the confines of the nests of birds, they find comfort and protection, and we believers, as God’s children, can find a haven of peace and security in His eternal presence.

Psalm 91:2 eloquently captures the essence of God as our eternal refuge:

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’

You see, we have a secure position within God’s love and protection.

Hear this: His presence is like a protective shadow, that shields us from harm and provides us with a sense of sure security. Like a fortress that shields us from harm, God’s presence offers shelter from life’s storms.

Even when fear and uncertainty surround us, we can find peace in His unwavering love and protection.

It’s high time the believer fully embraced God as the eternal refuge. When we do that, we find ourselves less reactive to life’s ups and downs, and more resilient in the face of adversity.

In the Bible, fortresses were built to protect their inhabitants from threats. Exactly so, God’s presence protects us from the enemies that seek to harm us.

See, the storms of life may come and go, but God’s eternal presence remains steadfast and unwavering. Today, let’s seek refuge in His presence, and experience the peace, security, and true love that only He can provide.

You’re blessed beyond measure!
