A Safe Place

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Homes have been built for years with safe rooms or panic rooms. Most of the public became aware of them from the movies made where someone would break into a home, and the family would huddle inside of a room that was built like a fortress until the family could be rescued. Safe rooms are built in homes to guard against intruders, but they are also used for severe weather, possible war, or to hide valuables.

The name of the room says it all, if I'm afraid I can find security, or if I have items that I need to keep safe I can place them inside without worry of loss. It's a place where things can be hidden and kept safe. If you look at the word "trust" in Proverbs 3:5 it means, "a place to hide", when I trust in the LORD, He is my safe room. If I need a place to hide from the storms, or the enemy has attacked me, my LORD has a safe place that I can hide until the danger has passed.

David called it a secret place in Psalm 91, and declared that the LORD was his refuge and fortress, and David would not be afraid because God had covered him with love. Why should we run from our problems and fears when we have a safe place to wait until we are rescued. Wait upon the LORD, because help is on the way.
