RE: He Is My Refuge

main image

I'd like to repost a devotional passage by the Reverend  Billy Graham Concerning God as our refuge:

Modern psychiatrists say that one of the basic needs of man is security. In the 91st Psalm we are assured that in God we have the greatest of security, “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” If you read and reread this beautiful Psalm, you will discover that in Him we have a permanent abode and residence, and that all of the comfort, security, and affection which the human heart craves is found in Him. Perhaps no visible angels will appear in your life and mine, but God’s promise of security is nonetheless real and certain. Those who live in the realm of God have genuine safety and security.

New Year New Beginning

We always hear about New Year's resolutions. We make them and resolve to follow through, but somehow we just don't get around to them. So here are some important ways biblically to not only make a resolution for the better year but a life change that can absolutely make a difference:

  1. Be sure to start each day and end each day speaking and listening to God. Through prayer and supplication which is the act of making oneself humble before God , not praying like your making an order at the drive through window of your favorite fast food place. Make sure you take the time to commune with God as you would a spouse. You wouldn't bark out and not listen to or discuss in a loving way to the one you're married to, then why treat God with lesser respect. Jesus said if the love for him should appear so great that in comparison to the others we love would almost seem a preferential difference that we appear to despise even our spouse in comparison.
  2. Let God speak: read His word for the context not just the content. Really study what it says and why. Ask yourself how it could apply to you as you read. And remember that studying the word of God is not just reading to be reading as you would a novel. God's word is alive and are the thoughts of God towards us, so let him speak; even if the terminology is difficult. Use a good Bible dictionary or commentary to help get a deeper understanding.
  3. Live your life as Jesus commanded. If he said do it then do it, if he said not do it then don't do it. Remember we show love and respect for him when we keep His commandments.

Micah 6:8 " No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
    and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
