The LORD is with me; he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies. NIV
I love that this reminder echoes the one I looked at yesterday.
Look at how this passage (verses 5-9) is paraphrased in The Message:
“Pushed to the wall, I called to God; from the wide open spaces, he answered. God’s now at my side and I’m not afraid; who would dare lay a hand on me? God’s my strong champion; I flick off my enemies like flies. Far better to take refuge in God than to trust in people; Far better to take refuge in God than trust in celebrities.” MSG
I love that. I’m pushed to the wall, but God is not constrained.
When I’m in a tight spot, I can call to Him, and he, unfettered, will answer.
Because God is on my side, because God is my helper, I have nothing to fear or to worry about.
I need to keep my focus on Him, my Savior, my Redeemer.
That’s what I’ll think about today.
