Fly to God

Psalm 11

Chapter Summary

Fly to God

What a lovely image David uses here—of a bird flying to her mountain nest where she is safe. David had a lot of chances to feel unsafe and hunted. He spent his entire young manhood running from King Saul, and then when he became king, he still had several wars, and even ended up in conflict with his own son! Where does David say his refuge is? Where is yours?

Day 137

You are my hiding place, Jesus. You hold me safe like a nest, even when I am in the midst of trouble. Give me Your peace that is not like the world’s and keep me safe inside my heart even if I am not in safe surroundings.

Psalm 11:7

Psalm 11


11 In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord‘s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
