“See the man who would not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his riches and sought refuge in his own destruction!”
[Psalm 52:7 ESV]
“When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, You knew my path…I cried out to You, O Lord; I said, “You are my refuge, My portion in the land of the living…Bring my soul out of prison, So that I may give thanks to Your name…”
[Psalm 142:3a, 5, 7a NASB]
"Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul…I take refuge in You. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.”
[Psalm 143:8, 9b, 10, 11 NASB]
“O Lord, I call upon You; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to You!
May my prayer be counted as incense before You;
The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,
To practice deeds of wickedness
With men who do iniquity;
And do not let me eat of their delicacies.
Let the righteous smite me in kindness and reprove me;
It is oil upon the head;
Do not let my head refuse it…
For my eyes are toward You, O God, the Lord;
In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless…”
[Psalm 141: 1-5a, 8]
