As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and forevermore.
(Psalm 125.2, NIV)
“When we went to the Holy Land, as we were driving into Jerusalem, the song came to me–the Lord truly surrounds his people.”
In what ways is being surrounded by God a good thing? Why is this the case?
Jerusalem is literally surrounded by mountains, providing a barrier for protection from outside forces. In what ways has God provided a barrier of protection for you?
How is your faith strengthened knowing God protects you both now and forever?
