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.



Our labor, safety and future are not in our hands alone, but ultimately in the hands of the LORD who is forming us.
