“Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my high tower, I will never be shaken.” Psalm 62:2
You, Lord Jesus, are the mighty Tower: strong and sure, standing high over the dangers and demons of this world. You are our ever-effective Refuge and Redeemer.
As our high Tower, it is as if you lift us up, set us on your shoulder, make us safe, give us a wider view, bring us understanding, hold us near your heart, and give us wisdom and advice.
With you, in you, by you, all is good. No matter what comes we can rejoice in you; we are protected from what is truly harmful, our future is secure, we are set free to obey you with joy, to worship you with all our hearts, to love you with all our mind, strength and will.
When we look to you and truly see you in all your beauty and glory, your greatness and goodness, we are dizzy with delight, for you are beyond what we could possibly have thought up in our limited imaginations.
We tend to think of you in human terms, which are far below what you really are.
–Where we imagined tinsel, you are like titanium;
–where we imagined plastic you are like the pure power of steel;
— where we imagined smallness you are immense;
–where we imagined earning righteousness, you give grace;
–where we imagined ourselves somewhat good, only you are perfectly pure;
–where we imagined you like us, you are completely other:
full of contra-conditional love,
ready to forgive
and plenteous in mercy to all who call upon you.
You are a wonder, Lord Jesus, you are wonderful, you are fully worthy of our worship. Lead us in honoring you today
