“For you’ve been a safe place for me, a good place to hide. Strong God, I’m watching you do it, I can always count on you— God, my dependable love.(Ps 59:17 msg) ”
When do you need a safe place?
When you are tired.
When you are afraid.
When you are overwhelmed.
When you need a place to rest, to recoup, to recover, to refresh.
I need a safe place to hide when the world crowds in and I am too tired to fight.
So I don’t.
I run to my refuge and lay down my weapons. I don’t think about what worries me or what problems lay beyond the wall. I focus on God and let worship rise from within my spirit. I sing sweet words of praise and let it cleanse my soul.
When you need a safe place, retreat into the arms of God and rest.
Let go of your worry and pick up your praise.
Shut the world out and surround yourself with worship.
Worship is the key that opens the door to your safest place.
“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely. (Psalm 59:16, 17 NIV)”
