Stepping Up: Week 3 - Day 1

Day 1 - He Surrounds His People

Psalm 125
1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil.
4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers.
Peace be upon Israel.

This day focused entirely on verse 1.  The word "trust" means confident, secure, sure.  When we trust in the Lord we find confidence and security.  Every step we take, we can move forward and be sure in His presense.

If we depend on God rather than worldly possessions such as jobs, wealth, and even relationships - then we will not be shaken when these possessions are gone.  We are solid as a mountain because our trust is in the Lord.
