The word for “refuge” in the Psalms
Is sometimes rendered
“a high tower.”
David was no stranger to trouble.
He had spent most of his youth
and early manhood hiding
in the hills, forests, wastelands,
He even hid in foreign countries
from His slanders and executioners.
Often he longed for a high tower,
He looked for a place of security
He looked for a place he could run
He looked for a place hide
secure from his enemies.
He found His refuge in the Lord.
Come to me Jesus tells us
Come to me
all you who are weary
all you who are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
