a refuge in times of trouble...


From Jesus Today by Sarah Young

I AM GOOD—A REFUGE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE. I care for those who trust in Me. Even though you inhabit a world full of trouble, I assure you that I am completely, 100 percent good! I am light, and in Me there is no darkness at all. Seek in Me the perfection you have longed for all your life.

Because of the brokenness of this world, you always need a refuge—but especially in times of trouble. When you are hurting, I yearn to shelter you in My powerful, loving Presence. So turn to Me in tough times, and you will find Me faithful.

Many of My children fail to receive My help during difficult times because they don’t really trust Me. When adversity strikes, they either lash out angrily at Me or become so focused on their problems that they forget I am with them. An essential element of trusting Me is remembering My promise to be with you always. Trust in Me, My child, and I will take care of you.

The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.

          --Naham 1:7

 

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

          --1 John 1:5 NKJV

 

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

          --Psalm 56:3 ESV

Praying each of you had a lovely, blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving holiday! (I’m still in bed with my tissues and acetaminophen. Sigh.)

Have a Wonderful Week—wherever in this World you are!
