QT – Psalm 125

Vs. 1, “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.”  This is considered a trust Psalm as the Psalmist proclaims God’s protection over His people.  Jerusalem is built on one of seven mountain peaks and that helped provide protection for them, but of course…God is the true protector (vs. 2).  The evil Kings holds their scepter against God’s people…but God provides safety to the righteous. 

Regarding application…God’s Hedge of Protection.  Vs. 2, “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”  This is reminiscent of the hedge of protection that God gave Job (Job 1:10).  God gives us our own spiritual mountains of protection each and every day.  Pray that God would put His hedge of protection upon your home, in your schools, in your workplace.  Put on the full armor of God and be ready to claim Victory in Jesus!  Have a blessed start of your week!
