Everlasting Refuge

September 26, 2012

Psalm 46:1God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Our God is
Our refuge and our unyielding strength
Our Rock in which to dwell
Our sheltering stronghold
Our fortress
Our strong tower
Our impenetrable shield
To which we may CONTINUALLY come …

Be to me a rock of refuge in which to dwell, and a sheltering stronghold to which I may continually resort, which You have appointed to save me, for You are my Rock and my Fortress. -Ps 71:3 AMP

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. -Prov 18:10

The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. The Lord is their [unyielding] Strength, and He is the Stronghold of salvation to [me] His anointed. -Ps 28:7-8 AMP

Our EVER present help
Our everlasting Rock
Our everlasting strength
Our everlasting peace
Our everlasting comfort
Our everlasting joy!

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]. -Isa 26:3-4

I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you. -Jn 14:18

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. -Ps 16:11

The eternal God is our refuge and underneath are His everlasting arms!-Deut 33:27

Pondering this scripture really blessed and encouraged me! It was as if the Lord reminded me that He is my rock of refuge to which I can continually come and find what I need – strength, protection, peace comfort, joy. This is both for now and forever; His arms are an everlasting refuge!

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, Who loved us and gave us everlasting consolation and encouragement and well-founded hope through [His] grace (unmerited favor), comfort and encourage your hearts and strengthen them [make them steadfast and keep them unswerving] in every good work and word. -2Thess 2:16-17

🙂 Hope this final word study really puts a smile on your face!
