The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him (Na 1:7a).
Fortunately, there have been very few times that I have needed a place of refuge–physically. Once, my young son and I encountered a bobcat in the woods behind our house. Defenseless in ourselves, we trusted God, and under His care, scurried safely into the house.
But mentally or emotionally—well, that’s another story. I waste so much time trying to come to grips with a very sick world.
His promises however, never fail. What comfort there is in the place described in psalms where we can find refuge in the shadow of His wing. How priceless is His unfailing love. He cares for the mind and soul and spirit and body of those who put their trust in Him.
