The Lord also will be a refuge and a stronghold for the oppressed,
A refuge in times of trouble; And those who know Your name
[who have experienced Your precious mercy] will put their confident trust
For You, O Lord, have not abandoned those who seek You, Psalm 9:9-10 (Amplified).
When we think about the proclaimed dangers of our time, we can be apprehensive or wonder what will befall us, our families or friends. These verses direct us to place our trust
in His "precious mercy", that we have experienced.
We had some questions raised last year that we can reflect on in 2021:
1) Is God in our daily equation?
2) How do we define the importance of life?
3) What do we individually value?
4) Where and with whom do we want to spend our time?
5) How do we deal with crisis?
6) Are we resilient? If not, how can we expand this skill?
Some answers emerged about who we are and who we want to become. Know that God assists on either side of the perspective. He will make us head and not the tail, Deuteronomy 28:13. When we follow this path, less anxiety floods our hearts or minds. We know where we can go for refuge!
