Daily Reading: Psalm 120-125
As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
The mountains around Jerusalem…
…Stand guard day and night, wind and rain, hot or cold, drought or plenty, their guard is never lowered.
…Tower far above the city where they can see both far off, and into the midst of the people, they never stoop, lower, or bow.
…Never move. Always in the same place, always the same height, always the same slope, always the same location and profile.
…Are as old as the post flood era, yet fresh every morning.
…Receive the first of the rain and snow, letting the water flow down through the pebbles, rocks, and stones, purifying the water to be utilized safely.
…Do not grow to the point of obtrusiveness, nor diminish to the point of uselessness.
…Will offer protection, fortification, defense, and shelter to God’s people forever.
As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people henceforth even for ever.
Until tomorrow, live for Christ today.
