Alex’s Commentary


Our text of today highlights the fact that the Almighty is at the ready to defend us; His presence is constant and persistent, immovable and unchangeable. This fact must put in perspective how much, how desperately we need His help. Considering the depth of our transgressions and how formidable our enemies – our sin, satan, the world – are, that we need assistance should not surprise us. However, the text also says He is our strength, that His Beauty provides for us not only a place where we can be safe but a place from which we can launch missions of service, a starting point for us to be helpful in His kingdom.

Because of the protection His Beauty provides, we can participate in His work of redemption.

 

For Your Consideration.


  • How challenging is it for you to be still?
  • How do you behold His works?
  • What do you do with the peace His Beauty secures for you?
  • React to this statement, “Jehovah is at the ready to protect me.”
  • How do you reconcile the fact that He is our refuge and strength with the existence of pain and suffering?

 

Extra Credit


  • How do the Means of His Grace give you the certainty of His protection and strength?
