      The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. Proverbs ESV; Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Isaiah ESV There will be a booth for shade by day from the heat, and for a refuge and a shelter from the storm and rain. Isaiah HCSB. 1 David being in the desert of Ziph, where the inhabitants did betray him, and at length in the same cave with Saul, 2 Calleth most earnestly unto God, with full confidence that he will perform his promise, and take his cause in hand. 5 Also that he will show his glory in the heavens and the earth against his cruel enemies. 9 Therefore doth he render laud and praise.

    Because he is God your Savior who will deliver you in his time and will not let the righteous fall. We find a similar instruction in the New Testament in 1 Thessalonians which says, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians ). Foreward. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms Deuteronomy Webster's Dictionary defines Refuge as: Shelter or protection from danger or which shelters or protects from danger, distress or calamity; a strong hold which protects by its strength, or a sanctuary which secures by its sacredness; any place inaccessible to an enemy.

    2. The great and one cause for not fearing. Fearlessness under such circumstances should be well grounded. God himself is our refuge, and we confiding in him are fearless. G. Rogers. Verse 4. Glad tidings in sad times; or, the city of God in the times of trouble and confusion, watered with the river of consolation. Ralph Erskine. Verse 4.   A refuge is a safe dwelling that people in trouble or in danger can confide in. It is a long pause of rest and assurance during a storm, siege or attack. When the troubles of this world come for us, we can trust that God will be our refuge, an ever-present help in times of trouble. God doesn't choose the times that He will appear to help us.
