Today’s Bible reading is Psalm 144.
“Blessed be the LORD,” David writes in Psalm 144…
The safe haven to whom I can flee.
The protector in whom I can trust.
The warrior in whom is ultimate victory.
The mountain upon whom I can build my life.
The tower of safety in whom I can abide.
…my STEADFAST LOVE
The faithful promise-keeper who will never leave me nor forsake me.
“Blessed be the LORD,” indeed.
O LORD, what is man that you regard him,
or the son of man that you think of him? (Psa 144:3)
What is man? Needful. In need of a fortress, a shield, a deliverer, a rock, and a stronghold. What is man? Unworthy of and desperate for steadfast love. Blessed be the LORD for recognizing and perfectly, graciously, abundantly providing for our greatest need.
Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall!
Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD! (Psa 144:15)
