Scripture Notes on 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. (Psalm 87:1-2)
God chose Jerusalem to be the special place He would make His home. He chose Jerusalem to be a shining example of His love and faithfulness. He chose Jerusalem to be a blessing to the world, and because He chose her, He gave her a firm and solid foundation of rock.
Now, God has chosen you to be the place He makes His home. Now He has chosen you to be an example of His love and faithfulness. Now He has chosen you to be a blessing to the world, and because of this, He has given you a firm and solid foundation on the rock of Jesus Christ.
Rejoice in this today and walk in confidence, because God chose you to be established in Him.
