UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: People often live in fear that misfortune will befall them. Where can we find protection from danger? The psalmist looked to God for protection in the midst of life’s calamities.
This psalm is universally relevant for anyone who has ever been hurting or in trouble and longed for some sense of peace and relief. Believers are not insulated from pain and isolated from difficulty, but in the midst of our mess, God makes a magnificent promise: I will never leave you or forsake you. Indeed, nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:39)
Dear God, thank you for your promise of protection in the middle of any circumstance. Let us always seek your face and never take our eyes off you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
