Focus on God’s Goodness-Refuge

July 10th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Psalm 9, verses 9 and 10.

The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

The grace of God is a safe place for our soul. We can run to Him in our time of need, and have the confidence that His love will be our source of help and strength. He is our Protector and Provider.

Jesus told His followers that we would experience trouble in this life, but He also encouraged us with the reality that He has overcome the world. His love for us is stronger than the hatred of our greatest foes against us. He is not surprised by the adversity that we face, and is able to work through our difficulties to bear good fruit in our lives. When our faith is tested with trials, those are times to lean in to God’s grace.

The Refuge of God’s grace reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
