Refuge

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress. Thus we do not fear, though earth be shaken and mountains quake to the depths of the sea… Psalm 46:2-3

Two earthquakes in two months. One nation was devastated. Another stood firm and had minimal damage.  As the earth shook on these two countries, Haiti suffered the most compared to Chile. Though the scales read further in Chile, Haiti and Haitians bogged down to a weaker quake. News around the web claims that Chile was ready for the unexpected and Haiti wasn’t.  With stricter building codes, in place emergency responses and experience in seismic catastrophic events, Chile chilled during the shaking sand.

One lesson is to be learned. It’s not how much strong is the earthquake, its how much ready and prepared you are when the quakes come.

In life, we can be prepared with quakes and catastrophes when we have God as our refuge.  He is our shelter to unsettled circumstances this life can bring. God is our protection when life around us shakes and disarranges our concepts. He is our safe haven when the very foundations of our society or family bogs down due to the changing times. Distress and stress can lead us to trembling hours yet we will not fear and we will stand firm with God as our refuge. As unexpected turns of life give us instability, we will depend in the strength we have in God. No matter how strong is the life quake, what matter is that we have God.

Bring on the quakes. Be prepared and be ready. With God as our refuge.
