God is Our Refuge


Have you ever awaken suddenly with thoughts of doom and gloom?

Have you ever been overwhelmed with problems that seem to linger?

Have you ever been brought to your knees crying out to the Lord?

Do you feel defeated?

Do you feel alone?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above keep reading.

As you walk in the purposes of God for your life, the devil will try to distract you with tactics such as anxiety attacks, sleepless nights, sickness, fear and anything else that might cause you to give up.  I do understand that we all have had things to happen which were out of our control but you must understand there are also spiritual attacks as well.

I began to recognize a few years ago things were happening physically to me that did not make sense. I found myself having to have a biopsy for the first time in my life after my mammogram came back abnormal.  My esophagus had become pre-cancerous due to acid reflux according to my doctor.  Every six months I was going to the hospital to have my esophagus scanned.  I am happy to say that my doctor called after the last scan and said he did not need to see me for a year. As far as the biopsy that also came back normal.

God has a plan for your life. 

Jeremiah 29:11 (MEV)

For I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

You must take God at His Word.      

Psalm 46:1 (NASB) 

God is our refuge and strength.
A very present help in trouble.

Psalm 94:19 (NASB) 

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me,
Your consolations delight my soul.

Psalm 91:1-2 (NASB) 

1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”

Psalm 62:8 (NASB) 

Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.


After seeking God about the next Vision and Destiny Conference, I realized God had already taken it to another level. He was waiting on me. This time the conference will take place on a cruise. I am so excited about what God is doing in the lives of His people who choose to follow Him.  Check out the previous Vision and Destiny Conferences here.


Final Thoughts!

Never, never, never give up!  God does have a plan for your life.  Trust God and always know that He is with you.  Allow God to be God in your life.  When fear tries to take hold of you always know that God is your refuge.  Psalm 62:8 says Trust in Him at all times.
