Merekats and Mere People
Hebrews 13:6 NLT “So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” I giggled a little bit as I read this verse today. Mere people. It made me think of those videos of merekats, all standing up in a row. First looking left and then looking right, orchestrated by whatever has them held in thrall. As mere people, we too can get caught up in the way we think we see things. We can get so caught up in the things we think people think about us, that we lose sight of the way God sees us. God sees us as champion-able. We must have confidence in the vision God has of us and rely on His viewpoint. God is always at our defense when we are threatened, even when we feel threatened by mere people. Merekats and mere people. I don’t believe that I’ll ever see this thought the same way again.
