1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
The psalmist is inspired by the most obvious feature is his view :
The psalmists has two metaphors for mountains
One for the people:
The people who trust the lord are like Mt Zion … they are permanent
The other is for the Lord:
He is all encompassing and also permanent … forever
So, the similarity is that both are permanent … forever
What’s destined uniquely is that the people abide while the lord surrounds
There is a single prominent characteristic to describe the people who are abiding and unmovable like Mt Zion :
Those who trust in the lord are like Mt Zion
I will trust in something
Myself, my circumstances, my knowledge, my abilities, etc. …
These things, however, are actually anything but permanent or abiding!
I must just trust in the lord …
Abide in Him.
The word makes me think of Jesus telling me to abide in Him.
Few things are more different than a mountain and a vine.
But I abide all the same.
He is trustworthy.
He gives life … forevermore.
Thank you lord for your word
Thank you that you are trustworthy
Help me abide
In Jesus name
