Read: Psalm 18:30-36

There is a story about a young preacher named Augustus Toplady, who was walking through the English countryside when a sudden storm arose. He spotted a wide rock formation with an opening, a cleft, where he sought refuge until the storm passed. As he sat there, he contemplated the connection between his shelter and God’s protection in life’s storms. He had no paper to write on but found a playing card on the floor of the cave like structure and began to write the words to the hymn “Rock of Ages.” This hymn has been a source of strength for Christians ever since.

Think of your struggles. Do you need a place to hide? Do you need someone to shelter you from life’s dangers? Do you need the assurance that you have been forgiven? As Toplady experienced, we can find refuge and assurance in God. Don’t stand out in life’s storms alone. Seek refuge in God. Receive His forgiveness. Get close to the Rock of Ages. Ask Him to protect you. He alone is life’s safest spot. When the world around you is crumbling, God alone is the Rock on which you can safely stand.
