Psalm 118:8-9: Seeking Safety

Friday, July 12, 2012

Psalm 118:8-9It is better to take refuge in the Lord than in man.  It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.

This is something we often forget because people are so easy to see and God is unseen with the human eye.  And so we must watch for God carefully.

God says: I know that you love me and I also know that you are easily frightened.  I understand that you look for a power base and cling to it, snuggle up to it.  This feels safe to you but remember: all people die and come to me, whether they be princes or serfs.  While you must form union with the people who make up your world, and you may even trust the faithful who clearly follow me, you must always put your final and ultimate trust in me.  I am the only true, final, all-powerful and everlasting refuge.  If you seek sanctuary, seek me.  If you seek safety, seek me.  If you seek surety, seek me . . . and no other.  I alone can save.  I alone love you this much.

May we know God as a refuge from all fears.
