Renungan harian alkitab, Joshua 20 , jumat; ” God is my city of refuges , Tuhanlah kota perlindunganku”

​Joshua 20:1-5 (NKJV)  The Lord also spoke to Joshua, saying,

“Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Appoint for yourselves cities of refuge, of which I spoke to you through Moses,

that the slayer who kills a person accidentally or unintentionally may flee there; and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of blood.

And when he flees to one of those cities, and stands at the entrance of the gate of the city, and declares his case in the hearing of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city as one of them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.

Then if the avenger of blood pursues him, they shall not deliver the slayer into his hand, because he struck his neighbor unintentionally, but did not hate him beforehand.

Tuhan telah mengatur, ada kota -kota perlindungan yang menampung orang orang yang bersalah dan menunggu diadakan pengadilan , sehingga tidak ada main hakik sendiri, atau ketidak adilan, orang tidak bisa dihakimi tanpa bukti kuat ia bersalah.

Raja David sering sekali bermazmur bahwa Tuhanlah kota perlindungannya ( God is David city of refuges) , karena David pernah bertahun tahun lamanya dikejar musuh, bahkan raja Saul, seharusnya David bisa tinggal dikota persembunyian, tetapi pemerintahan Raja Saul tidak menyediakan kota perlindungan terbuka bagi David.

Raja David menemukan kebenaran, bahwa kota perlindungan jauh lebih besar dari fisik bangunan kota, karena sesungguhnya Tuhanlah kota perlindungan yang maha kuasa, rasa aman dan perlindungan datangnya dari Tuhan yang maha kuasa.

 Para pembaca terkasih, jika anda dihakimi orang lain, difitnah, dituduh , ingatlah Tuhanlah kota perlindunganmu , Tuhan akan menjagaimu dan memberikan keadilan dan perlindungan, berdoalah didalam nama Yesus dan deklarasikan ” Tuhan Yesuslah kota perlindunganku,  menara yang kuat” .
