A Trustworthy World?
November 27, 2010 § 1 Comment
We know very well that we are not living in a trustworthy world. The signs of a lack of peace and security are overwhelming. That is why we always pray with Psalm 122, “may there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels” (122:7). We dare praying such a prayer because we know we have a trustworthy God with the ability to recreate a trustworthy world. Our hope is rooted in God’s ability to turn things around when they get stuck, and therefore, we never give up on situations in which there are an apparent lack of peace and security. Can you see God’s vision for peace and security in a particular situation, whether it be in relationships between people or somewhere in the world? If you can see it, you can pray with Psalm 122, “peace be within you” (122:8).
