Deuteronomy 33:27 (NLT) The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, ‘Destroy them!’
There is a way most people feel when they have lots of money in the bank. This feeling is because money has the ability to be a refuge, and many people trust in it.
For the man that has made God his refuge, his feeling of security in Life comes from his knowledge of God. Such a person understands that ‘underneath are the everlasting arms’ of God.
Every human being in this world needs some form of refuge in life. Some trust in chariots and horses (Psalm 20:7). This means they trust in systems that they have put in place. They derive their feeling of security from the money that they have, and elaborate security arrangements. But those who trust in the Lord know better. They understand that anything that is not everlasting does not have the capacity to be a reliable refuge for man. They have made God their refuge, and they will never be put to shame.
Go into today thanking God because He is a refuge. Determine today to let your feeling of security be rooted in the integrity of God. This produces the faith required to receive the resources of heaven.
Prayer: thank you Father for being my refuge. I ask that you help me never waver in trusting you. Amen.
