Special friends gave Mr. Whiskers a perfect little shelter to scoot into should stormy weather happen when the house door is closed. Does he use it? At times, if the mood moves him. Otherwise he may choose to tuck his furry body under the barbecue cover. On warm days the clear plastic covering the glider suits. With this summer’s rainy days the refuge closest at the moment works.
We need to know what is available to us when a storm comes. In Psalm 32:7 David said the Lord is our hiding place. He will keep us safe in trouble. Mr. Whiskers knows where the safe places are on our property. What door provides access for us to a place where problems can’t drench God’s dear ones?
Truth is our sanctuary. Opinions and lies can’t shake us when we know the facts. God’s Word is a sure foundation for faith and the strong walls of His promises surround each believer. Our part is to be fully persuaded of them in our hearts. When dark clouds gather we need to duck under the canopy of the Word quickly and shut the door on the enemy’s attack.
Refuse to let doubt in. Satan may be rattling on the door with his lies, but II Timothy 1:7 is a barricade. God-given power stops fear from rising. Confidence can be ours no matter what life throws at us. II Peter 1:3 declares that we have every single thing we need to live! That covers it. Father God has provided the perfect shelter from any troubling circumstance. Let’s choose to scoot in.
