Daily D – Psalm 142:5
Then I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.” (NLT)
I cry out, GOD, call out:
‘You’re my last chance, my only hope for life!’
If you had to guess what day of the week it was when King Saul took a poop in the cave David was hiding in, you would probably guess Monday. Some people have a visceral reaction to Mondays. Some Mondays are Mondayer than others. Here’s hoping nobody poops in your hiding place today.
David’s best hiding place was not a deep, dark cave. His best hiding place was God Almighty. He learned this early on and never forgot it. How often do we read in the Psalms, “You’re my hiding place,” “You are my rock and my refuge,” and similar affirmations?
On this Monday Monday, let us find refuge in our Father in heaven who is so much more secure than a hole in the side of a hill.
I will find my strength in God alone.
Our Father, you are our rock, our refuge, our hiding place. You are our security. You are our strength. We need you. We can’t make it without you. Thank you that we are never alone, never out of your care. Hold us tight today. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
Psalm 52:8, 9 ”But I am like a flourishing olive tree in the house of God; I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.“
