S – The Lord is a refuge for the persecuted, a refuge in times of trouble
Psalms 9:9 CSB
O – Commentary: The Lord God is their Refuge and Stronghold in times of trouble. The word miśgoḇ, used twice in verse 9 and translated both “refuge” and “stronghold,” suggests security and protection in a high, safe place of retreat
“Psalms,” in The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures
A – Everyone gets tired. Jesus went off alone to pray. We all need safe places to vent and reflect on our daily challenges. I recognize in this stage of my life the power of rest and solitude. God is both of those for me…along with trusted people who are walking with me as I go.
R – Lord, thank you for times of rest and reflection. In you, I find strength, courage and hope.
