Psalm 125

“Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever” (v1). When our trust is in the Lord, and not ourselves, the psalmist said that we are unshakeable. The Lord surrounds us day by day (v2), showing mercy, guiding us, defending us, and leading us in His ways. His ultimate goal is that we live under His kind authority – not the authority of evil (v3) – so that we can enjoy abundant life.

“Do good, Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts!” (v4). When our hearts are set on God, what He says is good becomes our desire.
