November 30 – From Self to God
The eternal God is thy refuge. Deuteronomy 33:27
A place to flee to, a sanctuary. An escape from misunderstanding, from yourself. You can get away from others into the quiet of your own being, but from yourself, from the sense of your failure, your weakness, your sins and shortcomings, whither can you flee?
To the Eternal God your refuge. Till in His Immensity you forget your smallness, meanness, limitations.
Till the relief of safety merges into Joy of appreciation of your refuge, and you absorb the Divine, and absorbing, gain strength to conquer.
The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God
of Jacob defend thee: Send thee help from the sanctuary,
and strengthen thee out of Zion. Psalm 20:1,2
