DAY 181.png

Focus Chapters:

  • 2 Kings 16:19-20
  • 2 Chronicles 28:26-27
  • Isaiah 13-16

 

Standout Verse(s):

Isaiah 14:32 NLT

What should we tell the Philistine messengers? Tell them,

“The Lord has built Jerusalem;
its walls will give refuge to his oppressed people.”

 

Observation (s):

  1. Any city built by the Lord cannot be overthrown by our enemies.

    What should we tell the Philistine messengers? Tell them,

    “The Lord has built Jerusalem;
    its walls will give refuge to his oppressed people.”

  2. Any city built by the Lord is designed to provide His people with a refuge.

    What should we tell the Philistine messengers? Tell them,

    “The Lord has built Jerusalem;
    its walls will give refuge to his oppressed people.”

Application:

As a young child growing up, I found refuge in books. I loved reading and spent most of my time with my nose buried in a book or hiding out in my school’s library. However, my refuge could not protect me from the harshness of life. This was a life that I learned to face the realities of early and quite quickly. Quite simply, my man-made refuge could not protect me, providing a means of oblivion only for a short time.

This is quite different when we allow God to be or build our sources of refuge. God built Jerusalem and no Philistine army could invade it without His approval. When God is our Master Refuge-Builder, nothing and no one can get in or touch us without His authorization. With God as our Master Refuge-Builder, we are guaranteed a safe haven/sanctuary and peace in the eye of the storm called our enemies, even when we are sorely oppressed and are surrounded by a feeling that we are drowning.

That’s a guarantee that I can live for! Let God be or build our sources of refuge.

God’s got you COVERED – Part 2

image

Yesterday I shared two testimonies with you guys about how God has me covered. As I mentioned it was the first of a two part series showing how God has worked in my life to preserve my life. Today was a rough day for me. I was in a lot of pain and the Lord just reminded me that I still had a lot to give Him thanks for even though things didn’t go my way.

LAST WEEK MONDAY MORNING
I left early for work that morning. In fact, I was very determined to be early for work. During the ride into town, I started to feel really nauseous. I questioned the Lord as to what was the issue because I knew I had had been fine just moments ago. The only thought that came to me after my query was that I should walk a bit slowly instead of my normally rapid pace. Even though I knew slowing down would make me late for work, I decided to obey the thought.
