But let all those who take refuge in you rejoice, Let them always shout for joy, because you defend them. Let them also who love your name be joyful in you.
When my heart was grieving over the loss of my beloved grandmother, I took refuge in the comfort of the LORD.
When I was broken-hearted because one of my children was making poor choices, I took refuge in the LORD’s promise that He would never leave nor forsake them.
When I lay near-death in the hospital, I took refuge in the LORD’s comfort and healing touch; asking Him to restore me to my family for a little while longer.
In those times when it didn’t look like there would be enough money to pay the bills I took refuge in the LORD’s promise to provide.
Each time I called out to Him He answered; reminding me of His extraordinary love and filling my heart with joy. He will do the same for you, too!
Pray: LORD, make me humble. Let me trust You in all things and experience the joy that comes from making You LORD of my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
