Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever.

Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.

The wicked will not rule the land of the godly, for then the godly might be tempted to do wrong.

O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you.

But banish those who turn to crooked ways, O Lord. Take them away with those who do evil.

May Israel have peace!

A person in our church in Bangalore shared this in the second Sunday of July. The image that captured my attention was “mountains”. Mountain is very familiar to us. The area where we live at the foothills of Himalayan ranges are covered with those. In fact, all the Lisu villages are surrounded with hills and mountains in four sides.

Here are few promises of God I felt quite relevant in our context:

  • People who trust in God are secure like Mt Zion (or you could say “as Mugaphi”). Let Mugaphi remind us that you will remain steady and strong because God is in your side.
  • God surrounds his people as the mountains. Every time you see hills around your home villages, remember this word of God.
  • God’s goodness will be with those whose hearts follow God.

May we never worry about the deeds of the ungodly or the crooked people. May we also never worry of our own weaknesses.

Our only constant question should be, “Have I/we trusted in our God?” The rest He takes care.

    Thanks for reminding us the significance of the mountains in relation to our faith. It really takes faith to have living relationship with God and things that remind the faith really refreshes our walking with God through faith. May we always desire to grow in our faith in daily life!
