Wisdom from the Psalms 10/19


October 19


Psalm 125:2

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.


Peggy love the island. Her grandfather had purchased the land and built a cottage on it before the first World War. Now it was hers, and she felt safe and surrounded and at home. Some of her friends thought it would be unpleasant to be completely surrounded by water, but she said it was just like having a private moat. To Peggy, this was a paradise.


For some people, being surround is a great source of security. Our Lord awaits to surround us in His love. From time immemorial, the Lord has gathered His children to Himself, encircling them in His protective care. We are held in that circle today. Rejoice that the Lord is near. He protects and defends us, and will continue to do so forever.


Prayer: Circle me in Your love, Lord. Surround me and keep me safe, I pray, and help me to draw others to You. Amen.
