“A refuge in times of trouble”

In Psalm nine, verses seven through ten, David writes, “But the Lord reigns forever, executing judgement from his throne. He will judge the world with justice and rule the nations with fairness. The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.”

I love the how David expresses the protection of God as “a refuge in times of trouble.” The most common way that God is our refuge is that we can pray to him whenever we are feeling frightened or overwhelmed, and we know that he hears our prayers, and one way or another he will provide for our needs.

When I was interacting with Christ and God using a legal substance, God once let me see the visible nature of prayer. I saw my prayer to God take on a bluish-green color, and it seemed to have a cloud-like quality to it. Slowly it began to spiral upward, traveling up to the heavens where God resides.

I was astounded by this experience, to learn that prayer has physical or spiritual qualities and that though we may not be able to see it, we can know that our prayers do travel to our Father’s ears. It makes it all the more motivating not just to pray when we need help, but when we are thankful for our many blessings, and when others need our prayers as well. God is always listening to us and will always hear our prayers, and he will give us the answer that does the most good, both to others and ourselves.
