in this day and age, where people find their comfort in a time of need is vast and personal. Some turn to family, some turn to substances, very few though, turn to God.
You see, sometimes life is difficult. Most of us know this, we can even see the wisdom in how trials are affecting people. We can offer comfort to others, both in love and faith.
When we are the ones being tried, when our lives are in shambles, where do you turn? We need to understand that God desires for us to turn to Him in all things. When the enemy attacks, the Lord desires to be our shield and sword.
When God tries us, he desires us to come to Him for instruction, to learn how He desires us to change. To understand how He is trying to mold us into the person He wants us to be.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. (Proverbs 18:10 KJV)
This verse should be forever on our minds. When things are good, and especially when things are bad. Taking comfort in friends and family are a good resource, but nothing takes the place of the creator of the universe, the author of salvation.
Now keep in mind, when one is “safe” with the Lord, it doesn’t mean out of harms way. It does mean that whatever you are going through, that strong tower of God is what is defending you.
Take refuge in the Lord.
