For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. (Psalm 91:11-12)
How timely that we re-enter the Psalms here at the beginning of a new year and decade. There is an air of optimism that pervades the nascent days of a new year, a feeling that whatever travails we faced last year will be erased with the turn of a calendar So confident are we that we proclaim structural changes in our life, beginning now!
The source of the psalmist’s security is not earthly riches, the strength of men or fearsome weaponry. It is rooted in a life tucked in close to the shelter of the Lord most high. Though the trajectory to the conclusion may be of different lengths, all people come to this truth. Move in close.
Grace and peace to you..
