Psalm 61

Posted by MDViews on August 24, 2009

This morning, I read Psalm 61. That God would speak through His word continually amazes me. My meditation on Psalm 61.

Lead Me to the Rock

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David.

Lead Me to the Rock

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David.

61:1 Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
2 from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
3 for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.

4 Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

6 Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
7 May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!

8 So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I perform my vows day after day. (ESV)

1) To know you hear me is blessing on blessing!

2) When my heart is faint, it feels like I am at the end of the earth. I know you are there, I know I can trust you, but my feeling is gone. Hold me, Oh God!You are my rock, so above me, so strong, so worthy my devotion and worship. Lead to that place of refuge, higher than I can go myself.

3) You have been my refuge against my enemy, but my enemy is myself, my sin, my rebellion. So you are my refuge against…myself. Thank you, Oh God.

4) To dwell in your tent forever is to forever behold your glory, the glory of the one without beginning and without end, here before the universe and here after the universe has melted away. Beholding the glory of the one who spread the stars across the heavens with His finger! Who has named every star.

5) Take me and make me worthy to be your follower.

In Jesus Christ, I find my refuge and strength. Thank you, God. Amen.
