Today's Daily Devotional

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him. Nahum 1:7

04/27/09 I mentioned when we looked at this verse previously that the New American Standard Bible says, “…He knows those who take refuge in Him.” The phrase “take refuge” is one Hebrew word: chacah. It means “to seek refuge, flee for protection.” I never thought of myself as a refugee before. But that’s exactly what I am. So are you if you belong to Christ. Sort of. But instead of running away from our home to a place of sanctuary, we have come to realize that the place of refuge that we run to is really our true home! Still, the idea of seeking refuge, of fleeing something to find protection somewhere else implies that we are in a dangerous situation, running to a place of safety. And let me assure you that the safest place to be is as close to Jesus as you can get!
