The happenings of the day across the world makes one to wonder, where can refuge be found when the place you have always known as home is bombed and reduced to but a pile of dust? Not to mention consequences of damage to the earth’s environment by man’s own actions.
Your home is regarded as ‘your palace’, a place where you know is yours, where you can just be yourself and feel free; no matter what the state or even what is happening in the outside world.
The reality of what is happening in the world around us makes me wonder that developing inner strength and connecting to God in your mind to seek His presence is the safest of refuges ever known.
In keeping with Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You” The preceding verses to this describe the pilgrim’s place (strong city) which is the presence of God – Mount Zion.
On an individual level, life has a unique way of throwing at us much more than we can manage sometimes, what more could be so soothing to learn to enter into His presence where you could enjoy perfect peace, obtain strength and guidance?
Stop today, and seek to learn how to tune your mind to that place of perfect peace-
STAY YOUR MIND ON GOD!!
