Whom have I in heaven but Thee? And there is none upon the earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the rocky summit of my heart and my portion (secure place of life and refuge–home place). For, behold, they that are far from Thee will perish; Thou has destroyed all those who are unfaithful to thee (a-whoring, adulterous, looking for lesser substitutes, entrusting one’s life and passions to anything or anyone else). But drawing near to God is good to me; I have made Adonoi The Lord Hashem The Name my refuge, that I may declare all Thy deeds.
What is it like to be distinctly, securely a member of God’s people?
