God is our refuge and strength, <br> an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way <br> and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
I find the repetition of the word interesting: have you ever thought of someplace as your refuge? Have you ever taken refuge before? In the news today, we often hear about refugees taking refuge to get away from war-torn countries. They seek a better life in the unknown, having faith that if they just go, it will be better. Our faith in Christ is not so different: if we just believe, it will be better.
Almighty God, my rock and refuge, hallowed be thy name. I am thankful that I can come to You at any time and You will always be there for me. Give me the strength to be more reliable for my brothers and sisters. I take refuge in thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer, Amen.
