THEME: CHRIST OUR FOUNDATION
“In the LORD I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”? For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do? The LORD is in His holy temple, The LORD’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.”
-David had different experiences in life and in this text delineates a contrast between the righteous and the wicked. He was under siege as king Saul sought to kill him and he ran to the mountains. He acknowledged that mount Zion; the holy mountain is where the Lord loves and it has a strong foundation (Psalms 87:1-2). Mount Zion is also called the mountain of the Lord which endures forever and in essence is compared to the heavenly throne of God where we hope of living with Him. The righteous run to it and find salvation for their souls. David also laments that if it’s foundations are destroyed then the wicked will be destroyed. Through Jesus Christ our sure foundation, we obtain faith and hope of everlasting glory with Him (1 Peter 1:20-21).
I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from. My help comes from the Lord our God who made the heavens and the earth. Lord You shall not allow our feet to be moved and You will keep us from slumber, You shall neither slumber nor sleep. Lord You are our Keeper; our shade at our right hand. The sun shall not strike us by day, nor the moon by night for You shall preserve us from all evil and prosper us in every good thing. You shall preserve our souls Lord. From Your holy temple and throne in heaven; Your eyes are upon us to test us, protect us and provide for us everything; according to a Your will. We submit our cares and burdens unto You Lord for You care for us. You shall preserve our going out and coming in, now and forevermore. Amen
