He said: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior — from violent people you save me. I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies.”

Perhaps your toddler carried a blanket with him wherever he went. Or maybe you found your heartstrings tugged over someone else’s small child carrying a favorite stuffed animal that she absolutely could not do without. We smile when we see these youngsters clutching their security symbols. But we adults also cling to “security blankets”—a behavior that’s not so cute.

Our security blanket may be a relationship that is unhealthy, but we can’t let go of it. Perhaps our security blanket is a job title, the right address, a model of car or the size of a house. Maybe we’re clinging to the idea of power or prestige based on our abilities. Whatever our security blanket may be, the truth is that none of these things offer the least bit of security. They can be stolen, lost or taken away.

That’s why we need to realize, as David did in this heartfelt song, that our security rests solely on God. Consider the words David used to describe his security: “rock,” “fortress,” “deliverer,” “shield,” “stronghold.” The words paint a picture of an impenetrable, permanent place of refuge and safety. David knew from experience that God alone could provide a sure security.

Have you experienced God as rock, fortress and stronghold? Bring before him those issues and needs that threaten your security and offer them to him as worship.

Lord, I bring to you this need …
