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

The Psalmist David understood fully the frailty of humans and our need for protection when he wrote, “I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” (Psalm 55:8) But this safe haven and place of security he was speaking of wasn’t a physical place at all but rather him seeking refuge in the Lord. Sadly, for many, their living environment is a ongoing war-zone…filled with emotionally draining landmines and rage filled booby-traps hidden everywhere and ready to go off. That’s why seeking solace in God is the only reliable stronghold where we can find shelter from affliction…for He is our hiding place.
