THEY THAT TRUST IN THE LORD
Thought for the day: You cannot trust in the Lord and be put to shame.
This scripture energized my spirit when I saw what God said about those who put their trust in Him. You may not understand the depth of what God meant until you understand what Mount Zion means:
They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
To have an understanding of this verse then you must understand the spiritual meaning of Mount Zion.
Zion is the dwelling place of God and Mount Zion is His throne, when the scripture compares those that trust in the Lord to Mount Zion, see some bible verses about this
Micah 4:7 “and the lame I will make the remnant, and those who were cast off, a strong nation; and the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion from this time forth and forevermore.”
Isaiah 33:20 “Look on Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken.”
Joel 3:16 (NIV) “The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.”
This is the heritage of a person that makes God his trust: the strength of God rests on Zion and God will protect His own.
Ø Don’t allow any situation to take you away from trusting God
Ø God will always rise for you from Zion, just trust him
Father, I ask that you help me to trust you the more in Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.
