Reminders of God’s refuge are found numerous times in the Bible. By definition refuge means shelter or a place of protection. What do you envision when you think of the word refuge? What does taking refuge in God look like for you?

We must pray in belief that God is our provider of refuge.

Father God,
Thank You for being our refuge and fortress.
You are our stronghold, deliverer and shield.
You are an ever-present help in our time of trouble.
Keep us mindful of Your Most High dwelling where no harm will overtake.
Thank You for being our mighty rock.
Your refuge is a strong tower against our foes.
And for this we are grateful.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
