God’s a safe-house for the battered,
a sanctuary during bad times.
The moment you arrive, you relax;
you’re never sorry you knocked.
Have you ever slept on a Casper bed? In my opinion, this is the best bed out there right now, and no, Casper did not pay me to write this about them. I’ve just had the best sleep since I switched my mattress about two years ago.
I was looking to the bible for God’s fingerprint and the comfort he provides, and I came across this verse. You see, as much as the Casper bed brings me comfort at night, this bed is no match for the comfort of God.
So this devotional is for all my readers who are hurting, who are crying, who are anxious, who don’t know where their next paycheck is going to come from. This verse is for those who may have lost a loved one recently or those who are fighting for health. This verse serves as a reminder that God is our safe house.
He is our sanctuary—a sacred place for you and I to dwell in. The verse says the moment you arrive, you relax, and you’re never sorry you knocked.
Have you ever been extremely underdressed at a party? It’s seriously the most embarrassing thing. You immediately feel inadequate to be around those people. You start to feel insecure, and you shame yourself for your sense of fashion. How about showing up to a pool party without swimwear because you thought it was a BBQ. Now you are the only person outside of the pool, immediately feel outcasted, and are counting down the minutes until you can leave.
The presence of God is so different. The comfort he provides will never make you sorry that you asked for it.
Jesus, you are our rock, our confidant; we are so blessed to be in your presence. Lord, we love you so much. We thank you for being our comfort on our lowest days. We look to your strength, and we look to your word; we look to your comfort. May you guide us in the right direction, may we never run too far away from you. I pray we stop seeking the comfort of the world, and we look to you instead. In your holy name, we pray, Amen!
