God is in Control/REFUGE

God is in control!!!

Acts 17:26-28a says, "And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:  For in him we live, and move, and have our being."

He is in control, and He is RIGHT HERE, VERY NEAR!!   Psalm 46:1, one of my favorite go-to verses, says, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."

I love the "refuge thing."  In the Old Testament (Numbers 35), God commanded the children of Israel to build cities of refuge, fortified cities, to where people who were erroneously accused could run and cry, "REFUGE!!!  REFUGE!!!"  The gates of the city would open to allow them to enter and then close so that those accusing and chasing could NOT enter .

God is our refuge, and satan is our accuser.  When satan accuses us erroneously, or reminds us of our past, forgiven sins, we can run to God and cry, "REFUGE!!!"  He opens His arms to us, and shuts the devil out!!!  We are His children, and we can find Him when we seek Him; when we feel for Him, He is right there, near to us, and we will find Him.  He promised!! 

He will also be refuge for our lost loved ones when they seek Him!!!  They WILL find Him!!! 

Feel and find Him!!!
