The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him, NIV
I looked up the main words of this verse in my Hebrew to English dictionary:
The Lord is good – pleasing, desirable, gracious, best, right, happy.
a refuge – stronghold, fortress, place of protection.
He cares – to know, recognize, understand
for those who trust in him – to take refuge in
So, there you have it. The Lord is the best of all possible place of protection. He is a caring, willing refuge for those who will take refuge in him. I love the intimacy of relationship that this verse conveys, and I am humbled that my Heavenly Father is willing and able to protect me if I will only seek his protection and trust in Him.
Trust is the antidote to worry. I will ponder these concepts today.
