He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (Psalms 91:1-4)
There is a song that goes something like this: “Where could I go, where could I go, seeking a refuge for my soul? Needing a friend to help me in the end, where could I go but to the Lord?”
In the days in which we are living, I am learning more and more, and day by day, that there is no where to go but to the Lord. That is the safest place to be, and the only true refuge for my soul. That does not mean that I will not face trouble in this world, for surely the Lord told us that there would be tribulation in this world, but He also promised us that He would be our deliverer if we trust Him. This passage of scripture tells us that His truth will be our shield and buckler, and that is a great source of comfort for the believer in Jesus Christ.
