Retreat to renew
Psalm 119:114 – You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
Another version of this message reads you are my place of quiet retreat. I think in a time such as this, when the world leaves us feeling disappointed and heartbroken, the prospect of a quiet retreat would sound appealing to pretty much everyone.
I love the fact that in the mist of everything we can still run to Him – we can always run to Him. He’s our place of healing, renewing, peace and perfect love. He’s the only place that can promise faithfulness and deliver it.
We don’t have to be weary or afraid of trusting Him. This verse says that we can put our hope in His word. We can trust every promise He has ever made and we can rely on Him to deliver each one. His Word will renew your heart, mind and soul if only you allow it.
I pray that today you have the opportunity to approach Him – your place of quiet retreat – and delve into His word, feeling His perfect presence renew your heart. Remember that you are not of this world. Just because the world is broken doesn’t mean that you are.
