This group of Psalms culminates in one of my all-time favorites: Psalm 84. Like many of the Psalms, these pictures of reliance painted here occur as we cling to God in the ups and downs of life. King David saw God as his shield and shelter – a place for him as well as all those who acknowledge that the world is a hard, dangerous place.
Remember to put yourself into the context as you read. David spent most of his life on the run being chased by King Saul. While our American lives are rarely in danger, it is not so with our brothers and sisters throughout much of the world.
Enjoy – our traveling, sheltering friend!
Here’s to a heart-solid week for you and those whom you love.
