For thou has been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall – Isaiah 25:4
The Lord our God is our refuge and strong tower. He is the strength of the poor and provides succour to the needy. He alone can provide all the comfort, help, security and protection you need. No wonder Proverbs 3:5 says “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding”. And Psalm 20:7 says, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”
Our God is our refuge in times of trouble. He shields us from the corrupting influences in the world today. If you’re born again, you need not worry about economic recession, inflation or any form of economic or political turmoil, for the kingdom to which you belong operates by heavenly principles. The Bible says “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house…” (Hebrews 11:7).
Everyone in Noah’s day, including the animals, drowned when God destroyed the earth with flood. Yet, Noah’s ark floated safely atop the same water that destroyed the ungodly. You have to realize therefore that the evil, hardship and harsh economic conditions in the world are not set against you; you should never be disadvantaged as a child of God, just listen, believe and trust Him like Noah did. In the midst of recession and economic downturn, God has ordained your prosperity. He already planned that you’ll be a success in this life.
Just as the ark was a haven for Noah and his family, the Lord Jesus is your refuge from the storm: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10). Everyone in Noah’s ark was sustained for a hundred and fifty days, but when you come into Christ by making Jesus Lord of your life, He’ll preserve and sustain you for eternity. Therefore, refuse to fret or fear, for the Lord is your refuge in time of trouble.
