Cross Song

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 31 (day six)
“Be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. . .Into thy hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord.”  (vs 3, 5)   Words of a song.  David’s words.  He put them to music.  Christ sang (or said) them on the cross.  Comparable moment to a modern person, with death fast approaching, who whispers, “that saved a wretch like me”.  Most of those standing by would recognize and connect them to “Amazing Grace”.  Psalm 31 is a prayer for rest.  Soldiers weary from battle are longing for a rock of refuge or strong fortress in which they may “let down their defenses” and be renewed.  Ever long for the same thing, yourself?  David say that we find such safety in the “hands of God”.  “He’s got the whole world in His hands.  He’s got the whole world in His hands.”  Different song.  Same idea.  Rest, dear friends.  Commit your spirit to God and rest!
