牧者心語 Words from our Pastor (2020-05)
“Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely. For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol; Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay” (Psalm 16:9-10). When David wrote these words, he was running from Saul’s army who was seeking to kill him. He was surrounded by dangers and probably lost everything he owned, yet he praised the Lord and rejoiced. Although he had no physical dwelling place, he still could dwell securely in the Lord because he knew his life was in God’s hands, and was confident that God would never abandon him. During this pandemic, we are also surrounded by dangers and many of us have suffered great losses. Will we be able to dwell safely because our life is in His hands? Will we be able to sing praises and rejoice in Him? Let us encourage one another to put our life into His hands, which is the safest place we could be. He will never forsake us or abandon us. Will you act immediately?
