God is a Wonderful Refuge

1O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever!
2Let Israel say, “His steadfast love endures forever.
3Let the house of Aaron say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”
4Let those who fear the Lord say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”
5Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
6With the Lord on my side I do not fear. What can mortals do to me?
7The Lord is on my side to help me; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
8It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals.
9It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
(Psalm 118:1-9, NRSV)

It has been said that Psalm 118:8 is the center verse of the Bible. Well this would depend on the translation and lots of things but it has been proven that this is simply not true.

Yet it is a great verse to have as the center of our lives. It is better t ok take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals. Take refuge, put your trust, or have as your center God. Because God will never let you down. We humans will fail each other. We will fall short and hurt each other but God never will.

God’s love will endure forever and God will never let you down.
