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.”

I think David summed up the verse above best when he wrote, ” It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” (Psalm 118:8)  If COVID 19 has shown us anything it’s just how frail we are and how precarious our way of life is.  This virus has exposed to us that mankind is extremely vulnerable and as a whole powerless against it.  So as David wrote, we can’t depend on man to protect us…only God can do that.  In Psalm 55 when David was overwhelmed with fear he, “hurried to my place of shelter far from the tempest and storm.”   Our trust then must be in God not man, for He is our rock where we can take refuge…that place of calm and peace, where we can feel safe.
