Safe and Secure

Safe and Secure

In reading through some Psalms recently I came across a familiar verse, but as I dug into it and meditated on it, I quickly learned some exciting truth I hadn’t seen before. David prayed for protection in Psalm 17:8, but notice he first states to be kept as God’s favorite in the NIV, “Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.”

With danger surrounding him, David asks for God’s presence and lovingkindness to be manifested. God says David was a man after His own heart. He was God’s favorite just as YOU are. God is overwhelmingly taken with you. He intimately knows you and loves you. That’s being the apple of His eye.

God’s protection surrounded David on more than one occasion. Both the Hebrew word for keep and hide refers to hedge about, guard, protect/cover. You are secure in Jesus because your life is hid in Him (Colossians 3:3). Nothing in the world can remove you from God’s hand and protection. He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). His love and grace surrounds you with shade, defense—sheltered borders—as you rest in His love and protection for you, trusting Him. He’s got your back!
