|But God will redeem my life from the grave;|
he will surely take me to himself.
|But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.|
This Psalm deals with death, which is not a popular subject in our day. We don't want to talk about death until it is thrust upon us through the passing of a relative or friend.
It's been well said that we never see a hearse towing a U-Haul. But even though we can't take it with us, the good news is that God takes us with Him! We feel so unfulfilled with the achievements of this world because this world was never meant to fulfill us.
We were created to long for the One who redeems our lives from the grave and takes us to Himself.
