A Refuge in Times of Trouble
click above to play 2-min devotion
The Lord is good,
a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in him,
but with an overwhelming flood
he will make an end of Nineveh;
he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.
Dear Father, I rejoice that Your limitless goodness dwells in the Lord Jesus. I whole-heartedly follow King David’s advice to believers in Psalm 34:8 to: “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” I want to taste and see all of Jesus’ goodness, and to continually take refuge in Him. I am very grateful that He is the all-powerful, and, at the same time, the all-caring Refuge in Times of Trouble. I marvel that Jesus, the great Lord of the universe (Who holds all He has created in His mighty hands) cares unconditionally about me and all other people who trust in Him. I repent for my tendency to try and handle attacks by the enemy, other crises, and just daily life situations, by myself. I really want to trust Him, run to Him and cast ALL my cares upon Him, in times of trouble, and at all times. I praise Him that ALL my hope is in Him. I pray that I, my family members and millions of other believers will resoundingly state with the writer of Psalm 91:2, “I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” I pray that great numbers of lost people who are currently in desperate trouble without Him will come to the Refuge in Times of Trouble right away. Please convince them of His limitless love and lordship. I give all these things to You in Jesus’ all-sufficient name. Amen.
