Psalm 87

Chapter Summary

Glorious Things

Do you know the hymn, “Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken”? If not, you could look it up; it is based on this psalm, which says that all dwelling places are glorious, but God’s house is the most glorious of all. What does it mean to you to be “born here,” in God’s house?

Day 213

Yahweh, Your house is not just the temple or the church, but the heavens and earth. I was born into Your hands even before I was born into this town and this country on this planet. I will dwell in Your house forever, where all my springs of joy are.
