Proverbs 22:26-27 

 

Verse of the day:

For you have heard my vows, O God. You have given me an inheritance reserved for those who fear your name. (Psalm 61:6)


In the first portion of this Psalm, David is needing immediate help from God—wanting God to lead him to that “Strong Tower—that place of refuge.” But David is not just looking at the immediate, or looking forward to future events of his life; he is looking at his future life as a whole.  

 

 

He is planning to live the rest of his life worshipping God.  He looks past being away from home and looks to the day when he will be fully restored and thanking God for the victory. David looks to a life of worship and also a life of trusting God.  This speaks of his security and rest in God.  He was looking forward to a life of confidence—a life that would rise above dread and danger—one remaining in the secure presence of God; under the “shadow of His wing.”

 

 

And because of the goodness of God and His promises to us, we not only can look to victory in this life, but also in the life to come.  We have a home in Heaven where we will worship God alongside of David forever, “an inheritance reserved for those who fear His name.” Secure in the knowledge that God, who protected and sustained us in this life, has already secured our eternity—an eternity within the walls of that “Strong Tower and Refuge”—Heaven.
