A Place of Refuge

This morning at church God reminded us through a prophetic message that his House is a House of Refuge and also a House of Prayer. We were reminded that the Patriarchs of old trusted in the Lord and he delivered them. “Bring to me your troubles… I will give you rest,” said the Lord through one of his servants. The message was powerful. It was not only for those present in the sanctuary where it was delivered. It is for you, too!

We felt the presence of the Lord very real. We had several testimonies of miracles people experienced this past week. That’s always encouraging.

One of my friends, that lost his spouse shortly after my husband went to be with the Lord, was all smiles. His prayers for his daughter, that she might receive a Visa to come live in the States (from South Africa), have been answered. He will have family here. I’m sure all the details will fall into place.

Then a friend from Peru sent me a link to a beautiful song on YouTube, that starts out reminding me that the Lord is my Refuge, the Rock in whom I trust.

As the Psalm-writers say, there is nothing like taking refuge in the Lord. Do it! Take refuge in the shelter of his love.

Psalm 9:9-10
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Psalm 16:1-2
Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I said to the LORD, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”

Psalm 18:2-3
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

Psalm 46:1-3
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

Psalm 118:8-9
It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
