Psalm 62:1-2 NIV
Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
As we remember those caught up in conflict, past and present, it is good to remember where our security and protection comes from. It is not from arms or superior strength. It is not through intelligence of a quick turn of phrase. It is not through money or popularity. It is through God. Unlike these other things; he is always good, always faithful, always present, always secure and will never let us down.
Lord, we place our trust in your loving presence.
