God is Our Refuge

I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Psalm 61:4

King David uses these story-pictures to drive home a very important theme throughout the Psalms: God is our refuge against the storms of life, the attacks of the enemies, and against our errant thoughts and waywardness.

I think the point I am trying to make in a number of posts has been that God wants us to come to Him. Yes, He chases after us and pursues us, but it would be so much better if we were running to Him, and so much more enjoyable.

So the question I have to ask myself is, “why don’t I do this more often? Why don’t I run to Him every hour of the day?” I could lay down any number of excuses as answers but none of them really hold up.

Fear and anxiety are two biggies, but what am I afraid of? Seriously.

Not enough time? I can make the time.

Not passionate enough about who God is and who I am? Probably closer than I think.

Those are some of my excuses, so what about yours?
