I really enjoyed reading A Shelter in the Time of Storm by Paul David Tripp. He shares his meditations on one of my favorite Psalms, number 27. I took a good while to read this short book, because I read it, one chapter a night, before going to sleep. There are 52 short (1-2 page) chapters, just perfect for a few minutes of quiet-down reading. Each chapter was profitable for my soul and encouraging to my faith.
Each chapter is Tripp’s meditations on a verse from Psalm 27, not in order, and some verses are repeated. Each chapter is very easy and quick to read, but also very heart-penetrating and convicting. I especially enjoyed the questions at the end of each chapter, which forced me to examine my heart and evaluate whether I respond to storms in a way that honors God. I was greatly blessed by Tripp’s God-centered writing and willingness to deal with the deep issues of the heart.
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
