God’s Truth for Trying Times - 1/23/21
We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).
READ: Psalm 87
"On the holy mount stands the city he founded; the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. Glorious things of you are spoken, O city of God. Selah Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush-- "This one was born there," they say. And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her. The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."" (Psalm 87:1-7 ESV)
CONSIDER: Everything that is good comes from the Lord. He is the giver of every good and perfect gift. He dwells with his people. We speak glorious things of God and his dwelling place. He dwells in his church. By his spirit and through his word he leads his people.
THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
