Bible verses about shelter
How awesome is God that He is always there for us. When life is full of storms we must seek shelter in the Lord. He will protect us, encourage us, guide us, and help us. Never stay in the rain, but always take cover in Him.
Don’t use your own strength, but use His. Pour your hearts out to Him and trust Him with all your heart. Know that you can overcome all things through Christ who gives you strength. Be strong my fellow Christian and fight the good fight.
