Most of us can relate to this Psalm very easily, and indeed it has brought comfort to many thousands through the centuries. It is one of the anchor chapters in the Bible that is easily reached and easily remembered. Somehow even when the outlook seems unlikely, it still resonates in times of trouble like few others. It is a lifeline that draws us in towards the lifeboat of Christ Himself. We only have to believe Him, and climb aboard.
At the centre of all faith is trust. Trust firstly that we do indeed have a saviour who has our number, and secondly that He is able to step out of the written word and become available within us. Our belief allows us to carry Him wherever we go, and partake of all the benefits of knowing a servant King. At any time He is present to perform whatever service is required, that we may serve Him in return. Satisfaction is guaranteed despite the turmoil all around us. A lowly virus called Covid 19 may well be seeking us out one by one, but the king of Kings has well beaten it to us!
