This morning I thought about the wonderful promises found in Psalm 5:11-12. I spent several minutes setting these words to memory, and I realized how precious the words have become to me as I look back upon the past and live in future hope.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
I consider the gladness and joy of taking refuge in the Lord. I love the image of God’s protection spread over us like a warm, soft blanket. I love the picture of God surrounding us with favor and blessing. We’re wrapped up in Him.
I walk around my home, go about my tasks, and curl into bed at night with the promise of Psalm 5:11-12.
