“But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread Your protection over them, that all who love Your Name may be filled with joy. For You bless the Godly, O Lord; You surround them with Your shield.”
David knew the benefits of God’s gracious love. He knew that he could call upon the Lord in both his time of need and in peace. He had full security in who he was in the Lord. Moreover he had full assurance that because of God’s unfailing love towards him, he could enter into God’s presence and rejoice in the fullness of God’s love.
We too can have that same assurance, security and peace knowing that we are loved by the creator of the universe. We are protected by the Saviour of the world. In addition, we can find rest for our weary souls, in the refuge of our Father’s loving arms.
May David’s blessing, in today’s verse, be relevant for your life. May God truly bless you. May you find refuge in God’s presence. May joy fill your heart. And may you find protection from the enemy as you are surrounded with the Lord’s shield. The Lord is for you and not against you.
May “all who love Your Name may be filled with joy.”
I live in a harsh environment. I desperately seek refuge,security and peace from God. But my prayer seems utterly out of God’s reach. Anthony, in this case What wouldl you do, if you were me?
Kazuko San, I don’t know what i would do, expect keep trusting in God. He is not a liar. When He says He will be with us if we ask Him, it’s the truth. We may not always feel Him but for sure He is with us. It is in our darkest and most neediest places that we can find God’s peace. Keep trusting Him my friend.
