“This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him.”
Psalms 91:2 (NLT)
Some days it seems as if doubt is waiting for me to wake up. I go to my chair to meditate and doubt and fear are sitting across from me arguing with everything I am reading. For example, in today’s passage the Psalmist wrote, “For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. – Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” As I read these verses, thoughts of those I know, people who are terminally ill, those who have been abused, those suffering financially, begin racing through my mind. “God”, I think, “If others I know aren’t safe, how do I know I will be?” I wrestled all day with my thoughts and kept coming up with the same conclusion. I choose to believe that even though pain and suffering comes, God will always be with me. He will never abandon me. I was moved to look at Psalms 91 again and the second verse leapt out at me. “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him.” My soul read it and a deep peace came over me. I say it with confidence, “God is my refuge, He is the safest place I know. He is my God and I choose to trust Him.” Today, put your faith in Him. He will be your refuge. He is indeed God. You can trust Him!
Father, forgive me for my doubt and unbelief. Thank You for being my refuge, for being a safe place for me. You indeed are my God. Today, I choose to put my trust in You.
