Always Has, Always Will

7 Feb

Psalm 125 is short and to the point, and Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase is wonderful.

1-5 Those who trust in God
are like Zion Mountain:
Nothing can move it, a rock-solid mountain
you can always depend on.
Mountains encircle Jerusalem,
and God encircles his people—
always has and always will.
The fist of the wicked
will never violate
What is due the righteous,
provoking wrongful violence.
Be good to your good people, God,
to those whose hearts are right!
God will round up the backsliders,
corral them with the incorrigibles.
Peace over Israel!

Do you know people who really trust in God. . not just give lip service. As I think about those people in my life who do trust God, I see that they are like Zion Mountain; nothing can move them. Trusting in God means not having to worry about what is going to happen tomorrow, or what people think about you, or if you will have people you love around you. God is there, period. God is caring for you, period. God can show you a way through, period.

Even when things are not what you expected them to be, or people you depended on aren’t there, God is and always will be. It is trust in God that sees us through the rough time and let’s us see the joy and beauty of life at all times.

So now think about those people who you know who don’t trust God; pulled in every direction, worry about everything, try to control the uncontrollable [which is most of life].

God offers us a way to live a deep, full, whole and holy life by trusting in God at every step of our lives. AND, if we are trusting God to guide our steps, then we can look around at the beauty that is there and enjoy the ride.

Here’s to trusting God and enjoying the ride. Peace
