God is Our Refuge

Some time ago. A security services company offering me to use escort services.  Their consideration is as woman corporate leader I need someone who has a special ability and trained in protecting a person from an unexpected and harmful situation. One from the board said: “Ma’am, I think you need it. This time there are some many unexpected thing that might threaten our safety. With a guard you will more secure.

I think this is the most ridiculous thing in my life if I use the escort services. I said to them: “Who do you think I am?  Do you think I am a Celebrity, billionaire, or someone very important from government? No! I am just an ordinary woman corporate leader. Many people in this country don’t know me. I am not very famous like Liliane Bettencourt or Christy Walton that people in this whole world knows who she is.”

A conversation above illustrates that in this world there are still many people who do not feel safe and comfortable in their lives. Maybe they feel insecure; they think that there is always a hazard that threatens the safety of their lives. Well, it is a normal. Crime does exist everywhere. This world already filled with various forms of crimes. That’s why the security companies growing faster lately.

As the son of God, I view this issue from the Christianity side. In fact, in the Holy Bible there are many verses in the Bible that gives our protection assurance. First, let’s we take a look in Deuteronomy 33:27:”The eternal God is your refuge,  and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’ This verse firmly said that God will drive out our enemies and will destroy our enemies. This is a promise from God for our safety.

Hire dozens of guards not automatically ensure our safety. But our God give us safety and security assurance. As written in Psalm 91:11: “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;” and in other verse of Psalm said: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”  Psalm 46:1.

My dear friends, the question is, if we truly persuaded and believe that God is our refuge and God will protect every step of our lives?  Do we still need a bodyguard in every our activity? A bodyguard still human being. God was created it. Bodyguard’s strength would not be able to counter God’s strength and ability. Let us together ponder the following verses:

 “My salvation and my honor depend on Go; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”(Psalm 62:7-8)

We just need to trust in God at all times and surrender our lives into the God’s protection.Amen

  1. You are so right on!! The LORD will protect HIs children. Your point that security is only human too is right. I love your faith and trust in the LORD. He alone can provide us with our security. We aren’t promised we won’t be hurt or killed, but our eternal souls are secure in Him and NO ONE can take that from us! Praise the LORD! Love you!
