Isn’t it interesting that God makes room for accidents? He has Joshua set apart cities where people can seek refuge if they commit manslaughter. The ultimate accident.
I’d rather him just prevent senseless death from happening, instead of strategizing the aftermath. But I’m thankful for his mercy and the way he advocates for the guilty.
When has God provided refuge for you, in the midst of your sin and mistakes? Of course, we are always extended forgiveness and a fresh start. But sometimes we’re in the thick of it, things have just gone down and we’re overwhelmed. He provides a safe space for us. He invites you to come and sort through what’s happened and what’s next.
Stop and thank God for the times in your life when he’s provided shelter from the storm you’ve created.
