Psalm 73:28 “But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge”

A refuge is a safe place.  God is our safe place who goes with us on our adventures.  Like a tent we take on our back in our trusty backpack.

Tim showed us some things about God that go with us wherever life takes us.  Let’s look in that ruck sack and see what He is for us to enjoy:

  • tent and sleeping bag 

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever present help in darkness.  He’s our rest and our safety and security.  He revives us like a peaceful sleep and an invigorating rest.

  • food (energy)

Jesus said, “take this, my body, and eat it..”  “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger”

  • water

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.”

See that the food and the water are promises that we need to act on.  We have to come to Him for his nourishment.   He invites us to come to Him for refreshing thirst quenching drinks as well.  It was great to see the kids smiling and enjoying our time together.  Playing is a great way to learn together!
