Guard my life and rescue me;
do not let me be put to shame,
for I take refuge in you. Psalm 25:20
If you’ve ever seen world leaders move about after they get out of a plane or car, you’ll notice a lot of highly trained security personnel surrounding the leader. Often they wear sun glasses to conceal where they’re actually looking. What you won’t notice are the powerful weapons under their suits. The weapons are large and lethal. It is said that the President of the U.S. is surrounded by no fewer than 200 trained personnel at any one time during the day.
Fortunately, crying out to God to shield and protect us is far more stable than depending on human security guards to take a risk on behalf of their clients. The Lord delights in us crying out to Him. We get a chance to re-establish that relationship with Him, and He gets to bless us with His presence.
Taking refuge in God requires us to humble ourselves and submit to doing His will. Fortunately His tasks are not burdensome at all.
