Where do we find shelter?
In modern life, people seek shelter and refuge in many places, for instance many seek it in money and possessions. Others might seek it in a relationship with a loved one, while others might seek it in their careers or professions… Some might even try to find refuge in drugs or drink.
None of these can really protect us from much, for the things of men will perish after a season. In spite of this grim reality, shelter and refuge are available for anyone who seeks them; we need only to seek them in the right place.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Do we seek the shelter of God?
Will we dwell in His ways, walk His path and do His will? I’d have to say this is an important question, for in our answer lies our destiny. If we answer “no” there will be no place to take refuge, but if we answer “yes” our security is assured now and for ever.
