Psalm 9:9 - The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Where are you going to look for refuge in times of troubles or lacking? Many of us tend to run away from God and turn to the problems instead. Today, you are to know that when problems come, when poverty drops by, you are to run to your Father in Heaven directly!
He is refuge for the oppressed. In the original meaning, refuge here means an inaccessible place. It means Jesus is an inaccessible place for all your problems! Then, you are to be assured that poverty has no access to Jesus, sicknesses have no access to Jesus, broken relationship has no access to Jesus, and even condemnation has no access to Jesus! Therefore, they have no access to you too! Probably you had been crushed by all the oppositions, financial problems, guilt; however, this is a day that you can run to Jesus. You don't have to wait until you settle everything by your own or when you are whole, you can run to Him anytime! In Him, everything that is bad is all inaccessible, you are well protected in His embrace!
In times of trouble, He is your stronghold! It means that He is forever in front of you to shield you! When condemnation comes, Jesus has it first! When accusation comes, Jesus has it for you! When curses come, they hit Jesus first! This is what He has done for you on the cross! A stronghold that you can always rely on! So run to Him today!
