A Continual Resort

I get emails weekly from a resort in our area that offers specials for manicures, pedicures and massages. I have been treated by my family on Mother’s Day to this luxurious place, and the spa tries to lure me back with their discounts. When I think of that resort I remember the refreshment it brought. The massage I received worked the kinks out of my neck. I was relaxed and felt great when I left! I have confidence that the kink I’m feeling in my neck today they could get rid of because I remember what they did for me last year when I was there.

This morning as I was reading Psalm 71 I read of another place I can resort. David writes in verse 3 – Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort… What a blessed privilege it is for us to run to the Lord throughout the day, continually! When we turn to Him we find that He is just what we need – always enough.

As we continue through the chapter we find that David knew he could trust the Lord throughout his entire life. Verse 6 says, By thee have I been holden up from the womb. Verse 5 reads – For thou art my hope, O Lord God; thou art my trust from my youth. We read in verse 9 and 18 a reference to the future – Now also when I am old and grey headed, O God, forsake me not. No, David would not be forsaken by God in his old age. He remembered what God had done for Him in the past and had every confidence that He could resort to Him and find help for today. He is the Rock to which we may also continually resort.

The kinks that the Lord worked out in my past He is still able to work out today. I remember Who my God is and I know I can resort to Him continually through my day and all through my life. What a wonderful God He is!
