I've been pondering the idea of God as Rescuer versus God being Refuge. Neither eliminates the storm or the danger. Both require waiting for it to pass or for help to arrive. To call God our Rescuer or our refuge is not to ask Him to still the wind and the waves-- although we would love for that to happen. The Rescuer endangers His own life for the sake of the one in peril. The goal is not to eliminate the danger, but to move the victim to safety. I'm glad my Savior is both. I need Him to be both.
In this world you will have trouble, but take heart. [He has] overcome the world.
