God’s sovereign choice of Jerusalem
As we read yesterday, God choice of Jerusalem creates intense hatred towards the city, the land and the people. But God is sovereign and His choices are not reversible.
For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His dwelling place:
“This is My resting place forever;
Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
I will abundantly bless her provision;
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
I will also clothe her priests with salvation,
And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
There I will make the horn of David grow;
I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.
His enemies I will clothe with shame,
But upon Himself His crown shall flourish.”
PRAY WITH THANKSGIVING THAT THE LORD’S PROTECTION OF JERUSALEM WILL NEVER CEASE.
