Daily Devotional for 16 May 2020 – Psalm 55v22 part 2

Psalm 55:22

Yesterday, we looked at the promise from this verse, “He will sustain you.”

There is another promise here: “He will never let the righteous be moved.” When it says “the righteous”, it means those who are God’s people, who belong to Him. It means the Christian, who has been clothed in the righteousness of Christ by faith. Although we still sin, we have received righteousness as a free gift by His grace.

But what does it say about “the righteous”? “He will never let the righteous be moved.” To “be moved” is to be shaken so much that we collapse and fall, to fall over, to fall away. God is promising that will never happen.

Trouble hurts, trouble shakes our faith, but God will never ever let us fall completely. We are 100% secure in God’s love and God’s purposes, whatever happens.

When we are going through trouble, sometimes the enemy – or own thoughts – whisper to us, “You’re not going to get through this. You are going to give up.” But this promise in Psalm 55:22 is that you won’t, because He won’t let go of you. By His grace, you can keep going. You are 100% secure in God’s love and God’s purposes, whatever happens.

This promise is repeated lots of times in the Psalms. Here are two of them to encourage you today:

“He will not let your foot be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.” (Psalm 121:3)

“Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.” (Psalm 125:1)
