Another word that comforts me in the times of stormy life is refuge ; this word is used several times in the book of PSALMS. I am sharing some of these verses now from the King James Version.
1/ Psalms 9:9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
2/ Psalms 14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
3/ Psalms 46: 1.God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
4/ Psalms 48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge. God is there for His people on the streets and in the palaces!
5/ Psalms 59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
6/ Psalms 62: 7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
7/ Psalms 91:2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8/ Psalms 142:5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
Yes, God is my refuge and I trust He is yours also my friend!
