This morning I re-discovered the following thoughts as I was digging through my computer archives. I was challenged and encouraged all over again. My prayer is that you would be reminded afresh that "the eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms." - Deuteronomy 33:27 (KJV)
Here's that "old" devotional thought from the past:
My favourite scripture verse is Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms.” I quote it often. The “epistles” I send out often bear this verse. To my discredit, some of my friends often quote God’s word back to me when I fail to fall back into those everlasting arms.
The founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance penned the following words that meant much to me this morning:
“Art thou sunk in depths of sorrow,
Where no arm can reach so low?
There is One whose arms Almighty
Reach beyond thy deepest woe,
God th’ Eternal is thy refuge –
Let it still thy wild alarms;
Underneath thy deepest sorrow
Are the everlasting arms.”
- Rev. A. B. Simpson
Run to your Refuge today and find solace in those strong arms!
