The Pastor’s Word – A Safe Haven
Category : Uncategorized
My middle granddaughter looked up from my lap and said, “Grandma, I love you!” I was humbled by this two-year-old admission. As I pondered it in my heart later, it occurred to me that these words might have come because my lap was safe haven from her sister and younger cousin who were taunting her with a toy that was frightening. But these sweet words that brought tears to a grandmother’s eyes are the same words we should tell our God. God keeps us from dangers seen and unseen! The writer of Psalm 91 puts it like this:
14 Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name. 15 When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them. 16 With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.
