It has been said that “nothing lasts forever.” But, is this statement really true? For people without the Lord, there will come a day when they lose everything. They have build their life on the shifting sands. But followers of God have a sure and certain foundation; eternal, and laid up in heaven for all eternity. Praise the Lord!
A song of ascents.
1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and forevermore.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain
over the land allotted to the righteous,
for then the righteous might use
their hands to do evil.
4 Lord, do good to those who are good,
to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways
the Lord will banish with the evildoers.
Peace be on Israel.
