There was a refreshing presence of the Spirit tonight. God never fails me, and he continually amazes me. Even when darkness surrounds me, He is always light. I needed the reminder, and God knew it. Drawing close to God protected my wavering heart. He is a safe place. When I spend time with him, I hear the confirmation of his direction.
David struggled with deceived areas in his heart. He was troubled by some of the choices he had made, and he mourned over them. Even so, he knew that God was good and more significant than any circumstance that he faced. The Lord understands when we grieve and when our hearts are troubled. He is always with us; he acknowledges the Spirit that comes to him during those times.
In Psalms 144:2, David says, “he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.”
Wherever you find yourself today, understand that God is waiting for you. He wants to be your refuge. He wants to provide comfort in the darkness. There is nothing that is greater than He.
Lord, thank you for all that you are and all that you provide for us. Be with those who may be struggling in the dark. Provide peace, comfort, and refuge. In Jesus name, Amen.
Baring His Beauty,
