THURSDAY DAY 29

Scripture Reading: Psalm 31:1

The word “refuge” is defined as, “shelter or protec- tion from danger, trouble, etc., a place of shelter, pro- tection, or safety, anything to which one has recourse for aid, relief, or escape.” The stronger the refuge, the more confidence you can have in it. The glorious news is that God is our refuge. Refuge is sort in the moment of trouble and danger. Refuge is the search for peace and security far away from troubled land or territory. In our world, during periods of disaster and trouble, people flee and seek refuge in a place where they can be protected.

Spiritually, mankind needs refuge. There are so many troubles and afflictions. So many battles and oppression. The kingdom of devil is waging war against the children of God here on earth and in the moment of trouble, who can we run to. The only hope of man in time of trouble is God. The Scripture says,” Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus said the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: I will contend with him that contends with you and I will save your children.” (Isaiah 49:24-25)

Run to our Lord Jesus Christ and he will defend you and protect you from the assault of the devil and his physical or spiritual agents. He will deliver you. He has attained victory over the devil through his death and resurrection. Do not run to the wrong thing or person for help. Rather, run to Jesus who is your sure refuge at all times. Running to Jesus will save you from disgrace and even if you don’t worth his help, he will still save you because he loves you and died for you to set you free from sin, the torture and oppression of the underworld.

Call on Jesus to fight all your spiritual battles. Ask him to come into your family and liberate it. Ask him to protect you and give you peace and you will see him do this. Our Lord Jesus says: “See, I will give a signal to the godless nations. They will carry your lit- tle sons back to you in their arms; they will bring your daughters on their shoulders. Kings and queens will serve you and care for your needs. They will bow to the earth before you and lick the dust from your feet.” (Isa. 49:22-23)
