Text: Psalm 31:1-6
Earlier in our study I talked about trusting in the Lord and trusting that His Word is true. Today’s passage goes right along with that. We are to trust that the Lord will be our rock, our refuge, our fortress! The Lord will guide us in His perfect will.
Does that mean that we’ll never get hurt, be persecuted or attacked verbally or physically? Absolutely not. If you read through the New Testament you’ll see countless examples of persecution in deeply devout believers like Paul and John! But the Lord will give us peace during those trying times. He is our refuge in times of trouble.
Try praying for peace during tough times instead of praying that the tough times be taken away. Maybe the Lord is trying to teach you something through that situation that you can’t learn any other way.
Find rest today my weary friend because the Lord is our refuge!
