Video: Your Word is my Refuge

The Big Idea: Psalm 119, a great passage about God's Word, encourages us to shelter in Him. 

Stay at Home, stay in the Word!

You are my refuge and my shield;
    your word is my source of hope.

Psalm 119:114 (NLT)

Psalm 119 is one of the greatest passages in the Bible about the Word of God. It is exactly at the center of the Bible. It has 167 verses, which are in 22 stanzas. Each stanza starts with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet. And every single verse makes references to the Word of God. Sometimes it is called "Your Word." But other times it says your commands, your statutes, your laws, your instruction, etc. 

Several verses talk about God as our refuge, our protector. And with that, God's Word gives us hope. I have been meditating these days on refuge. I am reminded of a time about 15 years ago when I had a chance to attend a couple retreats at a silent order Monastery. Monastery of the Holy Spirit, in Conyers, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. Listen to my Video Blog to hear about the light it shed into my life.
