“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1 in the King James Version of the Bible)

God may not rescue us immediately from our trial, but we must understand that He has a greater purpose in mind. We can rest secure in the peace that He gives us right here; right now in the middle of our storm. Let’s determine in our heart to always run to Him in times of distress, in times of difficulty and in times of despair.

Prayer: You are the strength of my life. I bless you, O Lord, for being my refuge.
