Run to God

March 9, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” —2 Corinthians 12:9

Sometimes God shields and protects us from trouble. But sometimes He ordains that we should go through the storm, and then He provides strength to endure it.

Our weakness showcases God’s power. It provides an opportunity for the display of His strength. But here’s an important reminder: God only proves to be a refuge for those who actually put their trust in Him, who recognize and acknowledge their weakness and need. If we run to anyone or anything other than God, we’re not going to find the refuge, strength, and help that we need.

So, think about some current troubles you might be experiencing or ones you’ve been through recently. Where did you turn for refuge? Are you trusting in anything or anyone other than God? If so, are those human, physical refuges able to protect, defend, and help you?

As you go through the trials of today, hang on to this Truth: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

Make it Personal

What’s happened in the past when you’ve turned to something other than God as a refuge? How you can train yourself to go to Him first?
