Safety and security are fundamental needs for all human
beings, but where can we truly find them? In what or whom
can we truly trust? Where can we truly rest secure, comfortable,
be at home? The world points us in many directions—to
jobs, to money, to position, to possessions, to power, to relationships,
to family. Jesus says “Come to me…” The God of the
Bible calls us to find our home, our trust, our rest in Him.
It has been fascinating to discover more of what this meant to
the ancient Hebrews and what it means in my own life. Using
Concordances and Bible helps to dig into the word “refuge,” I
discovered seven Hebrew words which are translated refuge
or stronghold or something similar by our English Bibles. Six
of these words refer to our relationship with God.
The first part of this devotional brings together paintings,
scripture and meditations with these six Hebrew words. I
have numbered and color coordinated the six Hebrew words
so you can recognize them in the different scriptures. The stories
are also in italics to help distinguish them from the meditations.
This section is in two parts. The first ten devotions are
revised from the original work. In Part two, I have added new
devotions with insights collected after thinking about “God as
my Refuge” for ten years.
In the second section of this book you will find more scripture
and a study guide with a Hebrew dictionary. This takes you
through some of the exciting things I discovered along the way.
Enjoy the journey.
