Reflecting on God’s Word …

Psalm 142:1-7 NLT
[1] I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD’s mercy.

[2] I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles.

[3] When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me.

[4] I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought! No one will help me; no one cares a bit what happens to me.

[5] Then I pray to you, O LORD. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.

[6] Hear my cry, for I am very low. Rescue me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.

[7] Bring me out of prison so I can thank you. The godly will crowd around me, for you are good to me.”

Reflection

Do you have a place of refuge?

When things are difficult and not going well, where do you go, what do you do? What do you say and how do you react?

Our place or refuge reflects what’s really in our hearts!
