“Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; In You I take shelter”
Psalm 143:9 NKJV
My “yard cats” know exactly where to go in times of trouble. I’ve watched them hightail it up this tree in mere seconds. Unfortunately, we aren’t always as quick to run to our safe haven.
Some of us are quick to turn to friends. Friends who often offer a wealth of advice even while struggling to manage themselves.
Others prefer to “Google it” and see what can be found on that world wide web. It can certainly draw us in, sometimes tangled and deceptive, offering as much misinformation as good.
If only we were as quick to seek our Father/Shelter in times of trouble what angst we would spare ourselves!
As we go through life’s trials and unexpected turns, we can choose to rely on ourselves and other people. Both are imperfect choices.
God’s Word holds the answers we seek. Only God can provide peace and protection. Come to Him all who are weary and heavy laden.
Some of us are so accustomed to running, we don’t know how be still. Instead of running away from your problems run to God. Trust Him to take your burdens, whatever they are, in exchange for the peace and refuge only He can offer.
Never underestimate God’s love for you! Run to Him and be blessed!
From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah
Psalm 61:2-4 NKJV
