In this reading, the psalmist expresses confidence in God’s light, salvation, and protection. They imagine God’s protection as a tent set high upon a rock. Rather than cower, immobilized by fear, though, they set about rejoicing and singing God’s praise with thanksgiving.
How do you behave when you are afraid? Do you hunker down and lay low? Do you bury your head in the sand? Do you lash out and cast blame? How might rejoicing in the promise of God’s protection change your reaction to fearful times?
Today, offer a prayer of praise and thanksgiving for the safe haven that God provides.
