In today’s passage we are reminded of God’s greatness—both mighty in strength, might, reliability, and eternal nature; but also in seeing the weak, those brought low. In verse 6, after imagery depicting his might in humbling the loftiest and strongest of cities, therein is the rest of the story—where the ground for the oppressed and the poverty-stricken is made even, their footsteps steady as they walk in the dust of what was once thought powerful. God reveals his greatness in his strength and in his love for the forgotten and the defenseless.
He is trustworthy. Not only to sustain and protect us on the journey, but to provide the way in the journey itself, that is full of its joys and sorrows and worrisome terrain and open horizons.
May we know with our minds, sense with our hearts, see with our eyes, and hear with our ears that you are with us and for us along the journey, O Lord. Be our rock eternal. AMEN.
