Friends in Christ Weekly Message
January 27, 2007
I run for dear life to God,
I'll never live to regret it.
Do what you do so well:
get me out of this mess and up on my feet.
Put your ear to the ground and listen,
give me space for salvation.
Be a guest room where I can retreat;
you said your door was always open!
You're my salvation - my vast, granite fortress.
Psalm 71:1-3 (Message*)
Do we rely on God the way the psalmist does? Do we trust God to get us out of our messes and up on our feet? Do we understand God as giving us space for salvation - salvation that is in the here and now? Is God our place for retreat and rejuvenation?
God is here for us. May we live in total reliance on God. And if we live that way, we will be pointing those around us to the One whom they can count upon.
