There are times when the pressures of life become a crushing weight upon you. You feel the waves crashing over you, pushing you deeper and deeper and when you finally catch your breath, a new set of waves come. The Christian life is not immune from trials and difficult seasons of life. When David wrote this Psalm, he was on the run for his life. Although David’s calamities were great, he knew he could take refuge in God. David was able to rest in God because he knew God would perform all things for Him and would send from heaven and save him.
Whatever situation you are going through, know that you have a refuge in God. It doesn’t matter what you have done to get into your situation or who the person persecuting you is. We serve a God who performs all things for us. The same God who sent Jesus from heaven to save us is still able to do the same today. Whatever calamities you face, cry out to the Lord and take refuge in the only One who can save!
For the King,
Pastor Daniel Batistelli
