Built Like A Mountain

Built Like  A Mountain

Psalm 125: 1-5, ESV

The Lord Surrounds His People 125 A Song of Ascents. 1  Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 2  As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. 3  For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous stretch out their hands to do wrong. 4  Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! 5  But those who turn aside to their crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers! Peace be upon Israel!

Sermonic Moves

  • 1. Trust in the Lord transcends human fragility - it makes us more than we are on our own.
  • 2. The groundedness of life in the Lord produces eternal staying power and preservation.
  • 3. Lest we become conceited and big-headed, being built like a mountain only works when we are nestled and surrounded by the presence of GOD - we are like reinforced concrete - we are far from the only ingredient keeping us.
