Are you overwhelmed by life? Is the chaos in this world making you scared? Has your painful past made you discouraged? Are you frustrated that you can’t find rest? Have all of your friends left you alone? Is the uncertainty of tomorrow paralyzing your decisions? Do you need refuge?

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

–Psalm 23

True refuge can only be found in Jesus. His refuge provides rest, provision, and security. Refuge focuses on how God has always provided His refuge for the world. In this series, we will enter His refuge and walk through Psalm 23.
