TRUSTWORTHINESS

December 3, 2016

Psalm 125:1

Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.

 

LESSON

 

The psalmist praised God that believers are secure in their salvation and that God will

keep temptation from overwhelming them. However, he cautioned God’s people to follow

the Lord faithfully—or lose His blessing because they lived as unbelievers do.

Believers in Yahweh are as secure in their position as the mountain God had chosen and

established as His special habitation. The Lord forever surrounds His people as a protective army keeping overwhelming forces from defeating them.

Mount Zion is not the highest peak in the mountain range around Jerusalem. To its east lies the Mount of Olives, to its north Mount Scopus, to the west and south are other hills, all of which are higher than Mount Zion. Surrounded by mountains, Mount Zion was secure, by its natural

defensibility. So the psalmist compares the Lord to the hills around Jerusalem and the people to Mount Zion.

Memory Verse: John 17:17
