When everything around us is constantly shifting and changing, where can we go to find safety?
Well, take a look at this scripture setting in the Bible. It says in Psalm 40:1-2 (ISV) I waited expectantly for the LORD, and he took notice of me and heard my cry.
Psa 40:2 He plucked me out of a pit of confusion, even out of the quicksand; he placed my feet on a rock and established my steps.
My friends, there is not a better place to find security and safety then on a good solid rock. Especially, after experiencing the uncertainty of ones life, (when it flashes before our eyes) while attempting to be rescued from quicksand.
Just breathing a sigh of relief in that moment, allows us to be so thankful for having the rock close by.
The solid rock symbolizes God. He is the One unchangeable thing/person/personality in these uncertain and changing times. When we are reliant on Him and His Word. When we have a relationship with Him through His Son. Then the ending result will be the safety and security that we so desperately need and desire in today’s fluid society.
Always, always, always please remember to run to Him and not away! He is always our answer and never the problem. He is always near us, ready to be our hiding place. The psalmist put it like this in, Psalm 32:7 (ISV) You are my hiding place; you will deliver me from trouble and surround me with shouts of deliverance.
Oh praise the Lord! He is our deliver!
