This is the stuff that gives you PEACE.


Psalm 9 : 9-10

9-The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a strong hold in times of trouble.  10- Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Let’s break this down.

Refuge = Protection

Oppressed = Suffering

Stronghold = place for security

Trouble = Distress; hard times (Could be many different things for different people.)

Know =  understand as fact or truth; to apprehend clearly and with certainty

Trustreliance on another person or entity; depend on

Forsaken Abandon; To give up

Seek = go to; to go in search of; to ask for

The Lord is Protection for the Suffering, a place of security in distress or hard times.   People who understand you as truth will depend on you Lord, because you have never given up on those who go to you and search for you!

When I read this and wrote it in my journal I wrote a note to myself.

In times of stress and pain seek the Lord and trust in his power and will, not your own.  He will not forget you or let you down.

This is entirely my interpretation and by all means you should open up the bible and find this in context and the understanding for yourself.
