We like choices, but God is an exclusive God. He demands our exclusive worship. More than that, he ALONE is our refuge — all others are lacking. Both Scripture and Skillet’s song “Refuge” remind us of this fact.
Let’s link our song to a psalm to meditate on God’s Word.

Wait quietly before the Lord in prayer and meditation on His Word. Sit in Psalm 62 this week, making observations, comparing and contrasting verses, and pondering the fine points of this psalm. Pour your heart out to God in honest prayer. Confess where you have placed your trust in people or money (or anything else) and declare today that God ALONE is your refuge.
