Chapter-a-Day Psalm 9

Knocker God‘s a safe-house for the battered, a sanctuary during bad times. The moment you arrive, you relax; you’re never sorry you knocked. Psalm 9:9-10 (TM) 

I’ve always been a fan of spy movies like the Bourne Identity and spy novels like The Brotherhood of the Rose. One of the themes in great spy stories is the "safe house" or Sanctuary. The embattled and worn spy, who has been out on his own can go to the safe house where he will find rest and protection.

We all go through times when we feel out there on our own, surrounded by the enemy. Weary and worn, we need a safe place to rest, to heal, to recharge our batteries. God offers a safe place to rest to all who ask, but you must ask. God provides sanctuary to all who seek, but you must seek. Notice that the psalm says you’ll never be sorry you knocked, but you must knock. For "he who asks receives, he who seeks finds, he who knocks – the door will be opened."

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 9”

  1. 9-10 God’s a safe-house for the battered,
    a sanctuary during bad times.
    The moment you arrive, you relax;
    you’re never sorry you knocked.
    This is so true for me. When I am down, turning to God and crying out makes me feel better. It’s like going to mommy when you skin your knee. The moment you bow before Him, a peace that only He can provide fills me. Even when things don’t go the way I want in the end, I am never sorry to have checked in with God. What a great blessing that is!
