Isaiah 25: 4 ” You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.”

Both the words refuge and shade essentially mean the same thing here in this verse…a place of protection.  Psalm 107: 27-29 gives us a vivid picture of when we are battered by the storms of life, “They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits end.”  But it doesn’t need to be that way if we will call out to God.  For He is our shelter, our shade, our refuge, and our hiding place from the storm. (Isaiah 4:6)  And in this place of protection…we can finally experience peace.
