This is day 169 of our journey.
Today we read 5 Psalms from the Korahites.
Psalm 45 is a romantic song about the beautiful princess that marries the king. The king is praised for his military prowess while the princess is praised for her beauty. They receive encouragement over their future children and the blessing they will be.
Psalms 46 & 48 emphasize the special status of the city of Jerusalem. It is the dwelling place of God. If the world itself were to melt and crumble around them, the city would remain secure in God's mighty power. If the nations rise up against it, the city would still remain secure in God's mighty power. The Lord Almighty, not the city's walls, is the true refuge of his people!
Psalm 47 is a hymn sung by the covenant community in praise to the Lord as the exalted king of the earth who has given them victory over the nations and a land in which to live.
In Psalm 49, the psalmist states that he will not fear the rich enemies who threaten him because they are mere mortal men who, despite their current wealth and political power, will eventually die like everyone else.
Join me in Psalms 45-49 and rest in the power of God to keep you secure whatever your current trouble.
