Always running, always there

We who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. Heb. 6:19b

We run to God for many reasons. Sometimes it is it escape harm or evil, fear, or shame, sometimes it is victimization, self-loathing, or grief, sometimes it involves our awareness of evil or our own mortality. His love doesn’t distinguish between our reasons. His victory at the cross was a victory over every possible situation or condition. The reality is that we are already in His arms. The hope always before us is a deeper relationship with Him that increases our awareness of His arms always around us.

Lord, I run headlong, with complete abandon, deeper into the refuge of Your arms.
