May 20, 2022 - Psalm 125-129

I love the imagery in Psalm 125: “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore” (125:1-2). Strong, cannot be moved. Protected all around. I read these words and just want to shout. God establishes me, and he protects me. God is on my side! Any number of hymn titles come to mind: “A Mighty Fortress is Our God,” “On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand,” “How Firm a Foundation,” and so many more. Isaac Watts pretty much nails it:

Unshaken as the sacred hill,

And firm as mountains be,

Firm as a rock the soul shall rest

That leans, O Lord, on thee.

Not walls nor hills could guard so well

Old Salem's happy ground,

As those eternal arms of love

That ev’ry saint surround. –Isaac Watts (17th century)
