Safe and Secure

 In Catalyst

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion. It cannot be shaken; it remains forever.” (Psalm 125:1, CSB)

When the psalmist says that those who trust in the Lord can’t be shaken or moved, is he describing you? I want to be a picture of an immovable rock. But the truth of the matter is I can easily Safe and Securebe shaken. I am often moved.

Some days I awake with the faith to move mountains and cast trees into the sea – I’m filled with joy and excitement about life and people. The next day I don’t want to get out of bed and barely have the faith of a mustard seed – I’m gloomy and sullen and moody.

I can be moved by lots of things: sadness, joy, success, failure. I want to be a thermostat, but I’m more like a thermometer that goes up and down with the weather.

What I often forget is that my security has more to do with geography than phsychology. The next verse reads: “The mountains surround Jerusalem and the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.” (Psalm 125:2, CSB)

My security doesn’t come from my feelings, but from the fact that “the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.”

Remember that this week when you’re tempted to be shaken. God’s love and care are surrounding you now and forever!

Join us this week as we continue our sermon series “On the Road” and study Psalm 125 together. “See” you then!
