Walking About Zion

Thursday the 23rd of November

in Meditations I

Psalm 48:12, 13a

    So often shame should cover our faces when we read what the psalmist wrote as he brought Psalm 48 to its close. He wrote: "Walk about Zion, and go round about her.  Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces"  Psalm 48:12,13a.

    Are you that interested in our great God's church? How much walking, telling, and marking of her strength and beauty do you do? Is God's church your main interest, or are your earthly possessions?

    In the measure that we rejoice and are glad because of God's judgments in Christ, we will walk about Zion and sing (PRC Psalter):

    About Mount Zion go, 
    Her towers and ramparts tell;
    That ye her strength may know,
    Mark her defenses well;
    Her royal palaces behold
    That ye her glories may unfold.

    There will be a different form of walking for us than what the psalmist could do. He lived in a time of types and shadows that pointed to Christ and His kingdom of heaven which He will usher in at His return. We have that cross, resurrection, and ascension of Christ and sitting at God's right hand that our souls can walk around. We can tell the towers of salvation which He built, take careful note of the bulwarks He has established and the beautiful dwelling place called God's house of many mansions, which He realized for us.

    The question is, "How often do you look at Christ? How often do the eyes of your soul go round about Him and His kingdom as we can find them in Scripture? Was your Bible open yesterday, or today? Did you look into it to be comforted about its strength and certainty? Did your soul digest what you read?"

    Our God is a great God and is greatly to be praised. This we will understand and appreciate when we look into His word to see what He did for us in Christ. The safety and security of His church is all inseparably connected with Christ. He is its tower and bulwarks. He has already reached its palaces. Consider that fact and look for Him to come and bring you there in God's grace.

Quote for Reflection:

"…Though man proposes it is God who disposes. Even great men, yea, kings themselves, are often thwarted in their plans, and discover they are subordinate to the will of Him who is the King of kings. How thankful we should be that this is so, that the Lord in His infinite wisdom ruleth over all."  – Arthur W. Pink
