We live in a chaotic time in history and I see people struggling to find safety and security and coming up short. People look to politics, look to movements, look to hide themselves in their houses, and there is an obvious unrest in our nation. As Americans, we are typically shielded from the chaos of other nations, shielded in the sense that nation’s problems don’t affect our day-to-day lives. But there has been plenty of unrest in other parts of the world — civil wars, genocide, and poverty — and this has been going on for all of history.
Moses, the author of this Psalm, was not ignorant to these hardships. He faced a great deal of difficulty in his lifetime that would have left the average American citizen in the fetal position. But he remained steadfast. He didn’t do it perfectly, but he didn’t lose hope. Why? Because he always refocused his faith on truth. What is that truth? That with God, he is safe. With God, he is secure. It’s still true today, because we have faith in that same God.
From Everlasting to Everlasting, YOU are GOD!
