God, help, refuge, safe place, trouble
“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
God is our refuge, our safe place our very present to help in times of trouble. When we think of a refuge and safe place we tend to think of a place that we have to run to. But as children of God we don’t have to run to the house of refuge, we live in the house of refuge. God is our refuge, our safe place our very present help because we are in him and he is in us.
When things of this earth are shaken and moved out of place, when the mountains, those things that we thought were safe and secure are being removed and carried into the midst of the sea, there is no need for us to fear because we are in the house of refuge. Psalms 91:7 says, “a thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.” Nothing has the power to penetrate or overthrow the house of refuge.
So listen, stop screaming and running around the house thinking that what’s on the outside can get in; be still and know that he is God and that you are in the house.
