Overcome by the cares of life, David escaped to the cave...a place of refuge.
Are you under assault? Do you need an escape - a place where everything you are, and everything you are not, is acceptable? Cavetime is God's plan for man's escape from life's assaults.
When David was under assault and mere steps ahead of death, he escaped to a place that was familiar to him - the cave, a place of refuge. As a shepherd boy, the cave was where he heard the voice of the Lord, wrote songs and poems, and received his courage, strength, and boldness to kill the lion, the bear, and Goliath. Overcome by the assaults of debt, distress, and discontentment, the greatest warriors of the day were also searching for a refuge - a place where they could find their strength, honor, and bare their souls without judgment. They found refuge and safety in the cave. Something happened in the cave, because later they were referred to as mighty men.
Today, men are under assault. Blitzed by cultural and spiritual expectations to succeed, most men feel they must present themselves as the perfect man with everything under control. They are defined by jobs, titles, bank accounts, houses, and cars. As husbands, fathers, and spiritual leaders, men are expected to instantly have all the answers. Believing the lie of the enemy of their soul, they become isolated, fearing they won't measure up. Men need a refuge, a place of safety, a place of escape.
Come to the cave...God is waiting for you there.
