Faith-Flight to the Mountain
Tap here for a video meditation on Psalm 11.
Surrounded by enemies, David finds a refuge of prayer to compose this lovely, brief psalm. He finds strength A in knowing that God, who sees all, will pour out saving power on those who live uprightly.
“The Lord is in his holy temple” (v. 4). Are you in yours? While David longs to fly as a bird to a mountain to flee from his enemies, his wish can become yours. Enter that inward center of your own soul, which is the Holy of Holies of your body, temple of the Holy Spirit. By faith, flee to the Mount of the Beatitudes, as the Gospels of these weeks come from there, portions of “The Sermon on the Mount.” Jesus lives this psalm, giving you strength in every circumstance.
The psalm will center you and comfort you, as you know by faith the One who is seeing you, loving you, and protecting you.
