One-Sentence Masterpiece

Posted: November 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

“I have taken refuge in the Lord, how can you say to me, “Escape to the mountain like a bird!”  Psalm 11:1

So much is said here with just one sentence. Here we find a guy in trouble (for a picture of how much trouble, read the rest of the psalm)  and his  friends are saying what friends tend to say in these situations:  “Head for the hills!”  However, while the psalmist may be small and birdlike compared to his situation, so is the mountain compared to his God.  So his body stays there in the presence of his enemies,  because his soul  has taken refuge in the Lord.  Hidden in that fierce fortress, he is stable, strong and untouchable. 

Does trouble trigger your desire to fly away?  Would leaving the source of your trouble cause you to also leave the site of your calling?  Then stay.  Hide yourself in Jesus.  Run like the wind to the hope of all ages.  You will not fail or faint or find yourself alone.   He is a refuge worth trusting.

Behold:  I am only as big as whatever source I run to for help.  My help is in the name of the Lord.
