"Our refuge"

Since my study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, the truth of the Scriptures has been illumined to me. In Psalm 46 : 1, I, find this beautiful promise, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." These words have been very helpful to me, for I begin to see that as God is good, good is our refuge, and that each of us may say "my refuge," because this refuge is for the rich and the poor, for those who are well and for the afflicted alike, for all nations, at all times, in all places, under every circumstance. This refuge is necessarily unlimited, unchangeable, ever present, and a strong refuge.

According to Webster, refuge means a place of protection or shelter from an enemy. We know we have protection in God, good, from all enemies, evil thoughts or beliefs,—sin, sickness, and death. We learn that this protection is for all; it is as impartial as sunshine on a bright day. Each one may claim the sunshine and have full access to it without depriving his neighbor of any of it.
