Glorious Things Are Spoken Of You, O City Of God

by Donald Mehl  
11/09/2009 / Devotionals

Psalm 87:1-3 NKJV
1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion
More than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God! Selah

After another busy day, I finally sat down to relax and watch some TV - hoping to catch up on the latest news. However, my channel surfing stopped when I came upon a repeat performance of a Bill Gaither concert filmed a few years ago in old Jerusalem. It was titled, "Israel Homecoming".

Perhaps some of you have seen it before. With the music, the scenery, the worship, and with the Biblical historical and future significance Israel will surely play in the days ahead, it's very moving - bringing tears to my eyes each time I watch it. If you have a love for those things, as I do, I would recommend getting the video. I have both the CD and the video. They are very well done and would bless your heart.

As a Bible believing child of God, I have a deep love for Israel and the Jewish people. I would have loved to visit there sometime during my life. Just the thought of breathing the air that Jesus breathed, standing on the ground where He stood, seeing the sights He saw, walking the same dusty roads He walked, and savoring the sweet fragrance of the Holy Land in bloom is overwhelming. I can only imagine.

Also, it would be humbling beyond description to see the places where He performed His miracles, the Garden of Gethsemane, Mt. Calvary, the Mt. of Olives, the empty tomb of our risen Lord, and so much more - not to worship or idolize those places, but to simply stand in awe of my Savior, Lord and Master, Who was there and will return soon as King of Kings and Lord of Lords - just as He said He would.

Praise God and hallelujah! What a glorious day that will be for all who belong to Him!

During retirement, my prayer is that I might serve the Lord by sharing the Gospel through my writing. As the Lord leads, my work will inform, challenge and encourage. I also enjoy Biblical theme woodcarving, Bible studies and Christian music. Watch, pray and keep looking up!
