Mount Zion

Reg Grant on October 30, 2009 in DTS Devotional

You feel trapped in a bad location? Consider Jerusalem: One reliable spring, its only natural resource was stone, and surrounded by higher mountains, so it wasn’t a great defense location. And yet the psalmist considered her to be blessed above all the cities of the earth. “[Jerusalem] is lofty and pleasing to look at, a source of joy to the whole earth. Mount Zion resembles the peaks of Zaphon; it is the city of the great king.” (Ps. 48:2) What made Jerusalem great was her King, not her location. It isn’t where you are that counts. It’s who you worship wherever you are.
