“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deuteronomy 33:27). “The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee” (Psalm 9:9–10). “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). “Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge” (Psalm 57:1). “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust” (Psalm 91:2). “But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge” (Psalm 94:22). “Refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living” (Psalm 142:4–5).
Golden thought: The eternal God is your refuge.
