God Is… Psalm 68:19-20

In my first post, I introduced a series I received from a member of River Ridge Church about 40 truths about God that everyone should read.

Today’s passage:

Psalm 68:19-20 New International Version (NIV)

19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens.
20 Our God is a God who saves;
from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.

What Truth(s) Do I Learn About God?

This one is pretty simple. God is our savior, in more ways than one. First, he saves us from bearing our burdens alone. Big picture wise, he saves us from the second death.

How Does This Encourage My Faith?

God will save us from our final death, and even when we don’t always tell him, he already knows our burdens. This life isn’t all there is, there is hope beyond the struggles and burdens we bear here on earth. At times our burdens can be so great, but with God’s help, we don’t have to carry them by ourselves.

What Response Can I Have As A Result?

It’s going to be ok. Maybe not soon, maybe not in this life, but eventually it will be ok in the time that matters.
