February 29

“Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” Psalm 57:1

These are interesting words especially in view of the fact that when David wrote this song he was hiding in a cave. Yes, David needed a place to hide from those who wanted to kill him. He hid in a cave to save his physical life, to keep his body safe. But David knew that he needed a refuge for his spiritual being too, for his soul, and he had found that in God. He could be secure and safe spiritually. No matter what happened to his body he could trust in God to keep Him safe forever. We need the same refuge and God will provide us a safe place for our souls for eternity. So we can say with David, “God is our refuge.”
