Chapter 17

God is a rescuer to those who call on his name. What is his name? Is it not ‘God is with us?’ Is it not ‘Peace?’ Even Jesus is his name.

A stumbling block to many. A stone that people are offended by. But a gracious King to those who humble their hearts. A loving brother to those who submit to the Father.

What a savior you are. You have saved me from the abyss. Out of depths of the belly of death, I called you with my spirit. And you heard my cry. You heard the humble supplication of your servant. Lord, who am I to merit your gaze? Am I not only what you have created? For I am your creation. In goodness and mercy, you have created me.
