O, GOD...

Psalms 71:1-3 (70:1-3 LXX)

O God, in You I hope; may I never be put to shame.
Deliver me in Your righteousness, and set me free;
Incline Your ear to me and save me.
Be to me a God for protection
And a strong place for salvation,
For You are my foundation and my refuge.

Encouraging Words

Once again, the Psalmist captures the essence of a life-long relationship with our living God. Someone who has spent their life in the hands of God always begins by acknowledging that it is Him that we put our hope in. That person acknowledges that it is God alone who is righteous and that only He can deliver us and set us free, This person knows from experience that God inclines His ear to His children and saves us, that He is our protection and a strong place for salvation. Our God, the creator of all, the benefactor of all, our source of life, love, and mercy is our foundation and refuge, There is none other that we would choose to put our hope in. There is none other that I will choose to put my hope on, for I have seen the works of His hands over, and over, and over again. Glory be to God, our Hope, our Protection, our Strong Place, our Foundation, and our Refuge.
