Rock of refuge

Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. Psalm 71:3

He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:2

No matter what is happening in life, God is unchanging. He is a firm foundation, unlike the shifting sands of the world. He is a safe hiding place.

Notice that we can come to him continually. In good times, or bad times; whether full or empty; day or night. No matter what else falls away or lets us down, God will always remain the same and he will always be for you.

In these psalms, David is able to proclaim that he will never be shaken. To be honest, there are times when I feel pretty shaken – when fear, anxiety or doubt threaten my peace. However, when I choose to take refuge in God, I can find that spiritual buoyancy which is joy, even in the midst of trials.
