PSALM 48

2 Outlines

 

Psalm 48

DON'T WORRY ABOUT JERUSALEM!

 

Psalm 122:6 - Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

 

Right now the problems in the Middle East have many of us concerned, and we certainly need to be praying. However, as Psalm 48 points out, we have nothing to worry about. God will take care of Zion (Jerusalem).

 

GOD'S PRAISE - Vss. 1, 10-11

God is to be worshipped and adored in Zion.

 

GOD'S PLACE - Vss. 2-3

Zion is special because of being the "city of the great king". David comes to mind first of all, but one greater than David, the Lord Jesus Christ, will reign from Jerusalem. Zechariah 14:1-9

 

GOD'S PROTECTION - Vss. 4-7, 14

God will protect Zion and those who trust Him! (Those who trust God trust Jesus Christ as their Savior. John 5:24, John 3:36)

 

GOD'S PERMANENCE - Vs. 8, 12-13

Jerusalem will be established forever, for God will provide a New Jerusalem. Revelation 21:1-2
