Psalm 9:9-10 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

These verses were such a blessing to me today! I just wanted to share them. What a blessing that those of us who know the name of the Lord will trust in him. Why? Because, as verse ten says, he “hast not forsaken us”. I’ll be honest, sometimes I feel like waving toward heaven and saying “Yoohoo! I’m down here!”, because I feel invisible to the Lord. But feelings, as we all know, are not facts. The facts are found in God’s Word, and He says He is my refuge and that He has not forsaken me, nor will He ever forsake me.

Isn’t that wonderful news?! I’ve been oppressed lately from various angles. I’m weary, I feel beaten up. These are truly troublesome times. What a comfort to know where to go in times like these – to the feet of my Lord in prayer; to the pages of His Word. My Lord is my refuge and I run to Him today. Would you like to come, too? There’s room for all.
