Psalm 132

“For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for his dwelling place: ‘This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it’” (v13-14). David rejoiced that he could make provisions for the Temple that Solomon would build (v1-5). The Temple, and the ark inside the Holiest Place, symbolized God’s promise to dwell among His people. They wouldn’t have to go searching for Him; He was close. They could worship God in the place He chose, without fear (v6-7).

“Here I will dwell” (v14). Jesus came to bring God’s presence among us, becoming the Temple. And by His purifying Spirit, we ourselves have become God’s dwelling place.
