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!’
(The Message)

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.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
