THE LORD IS GOOD, A STRONGHOLD IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE,
AND HE KNOWS THOSE WHO TAKE REFUGE IN HIM.”
A refuge, by itself, is a place that offers sanctuary and safety. It is a figurative expression in Scripture describing God as our security. He offers us a place that we can retreat to for peace, quiet, and renewal.
Further, He is our stronghold.
A form of a refuge, a stronghold is a fortress. When we retreat to our stronghold, we go to this one true God.
