July 6th, 2020 Daily Devotional

What words or phrases stand out for you in today’s Psalm?

For me, it is “We ponder your steadfast love, O God...”

I’ve always loved that word, ponder. There is a rhythm to pondering, a kind of poetry

and stillness. I’m going to take a few moments out in nature to ponder just now. Let’s

ponder together the gift of God’s steadfast love.

Psalm 48

1 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised

in the city of our God.

His holy mountain, 2 beautiful in elevation,

is the joy of all the earth,

Mount Zion, in the far north,

the city of the great King.

3 Within its citadels God

has shown himself a sure defense.

4 Then the kings assembled,

they came on together.

5 As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;

they were in panic, they took to flight;

6 trembling took hold of them there,

pains as of a woman in labor,

7 as when an east wind shatters

the ships of Tarshish.

8 As we have heard, so have we seen

in the city of the Lord of hosts,

in the city of our God,

which God establishes forever.Selah

9 We ponder your steadfast love, O God,

in the midst of your temple.

10 Your name, O God, like your praise,

reaches to the ends of the earth.

Your right hand is filled with victory.

11 Let Mount Zion be glad,

let the towns[a] of Judah rejoice

because of your judgments.

12 Walk about Zion, go all around it,

count its towers,

13 consider well its ramparts;

go through its citadels,

that you may tell the next generation

14 that this is God,

our God forever and ever.

He will be our guide forever.
