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.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
