Our Refuge

Psalm 71 repeats the word “refuge” several times. Every word in the Bible is important, but when God starts using a word or phrase over and over, we should pay special attention.

Here are some words related to refuge: protection, concealment, safety, security, shelter, tower and haven.

The word refuge is used more than 35 times in the psalms. God is passionate about our safety, protection and security in Him. He knows if we view anything other than Him as our refuge we leave ourselves vulnerable to this world, which always falls short in sheltering us. 

In what do you seek refuge? Is it money, a relationship, or do you feel you have nothing to hold on to? Jesus is our refuge and He is always pursuing those who need protection. Turn to Him and find the security you’re yearning for.
