"The eternal God is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms...." Deut. 33: 27
When I was a boy I had a childhood friend with whom I was playing one day. I was chasing him around. In his desperate bid to evade me, he dashed right under his mother's dress. Though I was but a boy, I knew that area was out of bounds for me. So as long as my friend stayed there, he was safe.Aren't you thankful that there is a place that we can run to, where the devil dares not venture? "The eternal God is (our) refuge...." Verse 27.
Then there's another boyhood experience I had of coming from church in the nights when I was too drunk with sleep to keep apace with my mother and older siblings. That's when someone would carry me on his/her back. It was great to have been the youngest then!
Does the journey seem a little too much for you? Not to worry, because we have the assurance that the Lord will bear us up with His "everlasting arms." Verse 27.
