For Those in Anguish

PSALM 11:1—“In the Lord I take refuge.”

GOD HAS NEVER FAILED ME,” wrote George Mueller (1805-1898).

“Even in my greatest difficulties, heaviest trials, and deepest poverty and need…I was enabled by God’s grace to trust Him, He has always come to my aid. I delight in speaking well of His name.”

Martin Luther (1483-1546), deep in thought and needing to grasp hidden strength during a time of danger and fear in his life, was seen tracing on the table with his finger the words, “He lives! He lives!”

I’d be a basket case if I had not made the commitment to seek God first over 33 years ago.

Taking refuge in Him has allowed me to endure a failed Texas church plant in 2015 and gave me the strength to persevere when, at my next church, 2/3 of my new congregation abandoned me—including my wife.
