“We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.” (Psalm 33:20-22, NLT)
As a culture, we esteem the privilege of having a wide variety of options from which to choose. In fact, some members of our society act as if it is a right!
The psalmist in today’s scripture declares his allegiance to only one Lord; only one God; only one Savior. We do well to narrow our “essential list” as the psalmist did, and make our Lord the subject of our focus. Who else has been our help and our shield? Who else loves us with an unyielding love? – Luther
