The refuge of the righteous

Trust in God is the most important, because in Him we will be more than secure, only in Him we can deposit everything we have, because everything we have managed to obtain is thanks to God.

It is good to remember every day that He is our refuge, the Lord knows all things that are within us, there are times when we need Him, because when those difficulties come we seek Him and we find Him.

In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

Psalm 11:1

How good it is when we read the book of Psalms and we find these beautiful words spoken by the psalmist David. This man could be passing any persecution but despite the difficulties he had to face, the psalmist gave an order to his soul to glorify the name of God.

As the Apostle Peter said: “To whom shall I go, Lord, but you? Because only you have words of eternal life”. This expression makes it clear that only God can give us a word of encouragement and that in Him we can take refuge.

The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

Psalm 11:5

The greatest refuge of each human being is in the Lord, only in Him we can trust, because He testifies to His saints, but whoever loves to do evil will not do well in His way.

For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalm 11:7

We have to be very aware that God does not miss anything. He has control of all things, He is righteous, loves justice and protects those who walk under His righteousness. Let’s not forget that God is our refuge and that we can trust only in Him.

    The refuge of the righteous
    ======================
    “In the LORD put I my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?” Psalms 11:1

    We all by nature are inclined to do evil things, to go against the Law of God, and we hate to be corrected. We look for things of this World, where the Devil is master, so we are in danger because he is our enemy, the most important enemy of our souls, which is a serious problem for us to be in peace with the Lord.

    Besides, the Devil is in the World, walking up and down in it as we read in the Bible:
    “And the LORD said to Satan, From where come you? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
    Job 1:7

    We can come across his servants and not see them, you know they are spirits, and they are clever and bad. The Devil knows human beings very well, our weaknesses…

    It’s quite important to be regenerated people, who belong to God’s family. If we believe in Jesus and have fellowship with him, this means we are righteous people, we live by faith, the grace of God has been poured on us.
    We trust in the Lord and his power. I am sure he protects us everywhere we go. We need to believe and to be separate from bad people and take notice of their bad influence, “be not conformed to this world”, as the Bible teaches us:

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

    The Lord is our refuge and our fortress on the bad day.
