GOD — YOUR PLACE OF REFUGE



“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea” 

Psalm 46:1-2 (KJV)



BLESSED NEW MONTH!

This month of July is the beginning of the second half of the year 2024.

Glory to God!

You may be reading this and today is the beginning of your time at a new workspace, and you have a sense of fear.
Today may also mark the beginning of restructuring your plans for the year.
You are reading this now and are also faced with a new challenge and unexpected news that has troubled you.

Your world may seem to be collapsing and you don’t know what to do.

Are you currently overwhelmed by your challenges and you feel suicide is your only escape from the vicissitude circumstance?

It’s too early to give up.

There is a greater option for you beloved of God in Christ.

Men might have failed you.
You may feel rejected by your family at this moment.
It looks like whichever direction you turn to, doesn’t favor you.

You have stopped praying, you have stopped reading the word, and you are currently planning to stay away from Church.

That is not the way.

GOD IS YOUR REFUGE!

Learn to trust in Him as your refuge and strength.

Can you imagine the confidence of a man living in a fortified castle on a hill during heavy rainfall?

He will not be troubled nor moved by the outcome of the rain.

You will find this man enjoying and thanking the Lord for the blessings of rain.

Unlike the homeless or the man who lives in a kiosk.

Both don’t deny the presence of the rain. However, they will both have different reactions towards the rain.

The consciousness of your location defines your attitude towards the storm.

In your time of trouble, don’t run away from God. In your time of trouble, run to God.

Most people see God as the source of their trouble and pain. Some think God leads them into trouble to test their faith.

No!

That is not God. He is not the source of evil, trouble, pain, and chaos.

Only good and perfect gift comes from God (James 1:17).

God is not your prison of pain. God is your refuge and strength.

He is not one who helps you today and will fail to help you tomorrow. God is your very present help in times of trouble. He is always present to help you in the now.

The storms may come, the waters may roar, the mountains may be carried into the sea, don’t be afraid nor shaken.

Remain resolute in the Lord.

Remain confident in who God is and His ability.

Look away from the trouble and look to God, who is your refuge and strength.

Hallelujah!

DIG DEEPER
(Psalm 46; Psalm 91:1-9; Deuteronomy 4:7; Psalm 23:4)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that we will not cast our gaze on the storm happening around us rather we will remain conscious of our present location in Christ while looking to God who is our refuge and strength.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Proverbs 20 – 24
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– God is my refuge and strength.
 
–  God is my very present help in times of trouble.
 
– I remain resolute in the Lord no matter the storm because I keep my gaze daily on Him.
 
– I am unmovable and unshakeable.
 
– I am firmly rooted in Him.
 
– I am always conscious of my present location in Christ.
 
Thank you Lord Jesus!

We'd love to connect with you!

To help you build a proper foundation of spiritual understanding.

Thank you Father, in the Name of Jesus. I remain conscious of my present location in Christ Jesus, that the Lord is my refuge and my strength. Ha!! I trust the Lord and remain confident in HIM as my present help at any time. Thank you Lord Jesus. I am seated with Christ in God in the heavenly realms of glory far above every principality and any trouble. As He said ,He shall leave me nor forsake me, but is with me till the end of the age

Heb.13.5 (b)
“….. for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] (AMP)”

Thank you Apostle Sir.

I’m so grateful,Apostle, for this episode. I’m truly refreshed.
This statement,” The consciousness of your location defines your attitude towards the storm” has greatly reassured and strengthened me.

‭Deuteronomy 4:7 NLT‬
[7] For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him?

Our God is just faithful in all his ways.
