As The Mountains

2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people, from this time forth and forevermore. ~ Psalm 125:2ESV

The psalmist wrote, “As the mountains surround Jerusalem.” Mountains represent protection. Mountains will break up and weaken the storms. They are protection from bandits and the enemy. Mountains can be used as a lookout as well as a place to encounter the presence of God.

This is a promise from God Himself to us. The Scripture did not say the LORD surrounds the Israelites. It said the LORD surrounds His people. If you are a child of God, this is your promise. If you consider yourself one of His people, reach out and lay hold of this promise.

All of God’s promises are yea and amen. Not one of His good promises has ever failed, nor will any ever fail. God does not say yes now and no later. This is good news. The LORD promises to be a shield and a protection to you and your family. He will give you insight and guard your way. He will rebuke the devourer on your behalf. If you’re going through a storm in your life, He will either break it up and bring you a calm and peace, or He will shield you and protect you as you go through the storm. Be encouraged and rejoice; God is for you.

Father, thank You for Your great mercy. For Your protection and for calming the storm on my behalf. Open my eyes that I might see Your grace, mercy, and protection each day of my life. Show me how to live and dwell in your perfect peace. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
