“The LORD is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed” (Psalm 28:8, ESV).

            The psalmist repeats the meditation of the previous verse, generalizing it to all the people of God.  This proclamation precedes a final exuberant petition that God would, indeed, be the deliverer of His people (v.9).  The images in this verse are “strength” and “refuge”, both of which signify protection.  God is a champion and a fortress for His people.

            Those who belong to Jesus Christ have an invincible refuge and strength.  If God is our protector, there is nothing we need to fear.  Have you taken refuge in your Savior with the troubles you are facing today?  Take shelter in Him, and lean upon His Almighty strength.
