An Eternal Refuge

March 18, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain. —Psalm 102:25–26

The storms, earthquakes, and flooding described in Psalm 46 (as well as those that we currently experience) give us a faint glimpse of a coming day when the entire earth will be shaken and dissolved.

Scripture describes the ultimate undoing of this earth as we know it. It will disintegrate and be no more. Then it will be replaced by a new heaven and a new earth, centered around that one unchanging reality of God (Rev. 21).

Those who put their trust in Him for their eternal salvation are secure. They need not fear. They will have an eternal refuge—but only those who trust in Him. Christ is our only hope.

When the day comes for that cataclysmic judgment of God to destroy this old, sinful earth, will you be overwhelmed in that flood, sent into eternal darkness, perdition, and judgment? Or will you be safe and secure because you have taken refuge in Christ, the Solid Rock?

Make it Personal

Pray that God will help your life to be anchored to Christ so that you can exhibit a calm, untroubled spirit no matter what.
