Jesus establishes my refuge.

“The firstborn of the poor will feed, and the needy will lie down in safety. What will one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD has founded Zion, and the poor of His people shall take refuge in it.” Isaiah 14:30,32 NKJV

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
accept My counsel
and reproof

for this is the way
to knowledge
how to dwell safe
and secure.

A laid down life receives instruction.

“A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:5,7,23,33 NKJV

Now I Lay Me Down

“I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”  Psalm 4:8

During an ice storm, the power went out in the middle of the night and the crash of falling tree branches echoed loudly.  Yet, our oldest daughter slept through it.

Lord, thank You for being our dwelling place of peace and safety, even when our circumstances would seem otherwise.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

His Sleeping Place

source –

Oh what a sweet
dwelling place You make
for me to lie down
in peace and safety

to sleep within
the deep, deep trust
of Your Mighty hand
upon me.

Stay With Me

“Stay with me, do not fear. For he who seeks my life seeks your life, but with me you shall be safe.”  1 Samuel 22:23

David was speaking to Abiathar after Saul had his family killed.  But, it could have been Jesus speaking to us.

Lord, thank You for the eternal safety that only You can provide. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Eternal Safety

Stay with Me
and do not fear

I will protect
and draw you near

for the one who hates Me
hates you too

but he does not reign
indeed, I do.
