Refuge

There’s a story about a poor woman who went up to the foothills in a Chinese town to cut the grass. Her baby was tied to her back and a little child walked beside her. In her hand was a sickle to cut the grass.


Just as she reached the top of a hill, she heard a roar. Frightened, she turned and saw a mother tigress springing at her, followed by her two cubs.


The illiterate Chinese woman had never attended school or church, but a missionary once told her about Jesus, “who is able to help you when you are in trouble.” As the tiger’s claws tore into her arm, the woman cried out, “O Jesus, help me!” The tiger, instead of attacking again, suddenly turned and ran away.


The Bible says, “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” (Psalm 91:11).


What “beasts” are attacking you? Chances are you will never be attacked by a wild beast, but you will be attacked by doubts, by fears of other kinds, by worry, by loneliness, by despair.


Cry out to Jesus and He will answer you just as surely as the Chinese woman’s desperate cry was heard and answered.


God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. - Psalms 46:1
