He Who Has Been With Us, Will Be With US

RG AUDIO 012012Psalm 48

The “city of our God” (v. 1) refers to Zion, site of the Jerusalem temple mount. The implication is that Zion is where Yahweh, the true God, dwells. Psalm 48 was written to commemorate, for God’s people, a victory over a powerful enemy. In the past they had heard from their fathers of God’s mighty hand bringing deliverance and victory. Now they had faced a battle of their own. They had become witnesses firsthand to what they had previously only heard about. They testify, “As we have heard, so have we seen” (v. 8a). No wonder they say in verse 14, “For this God is our God forever ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.”

He who has delivered in the past is more than able to deliver again.

What has God delivered you from? Never allow the challenges of today cloud your memory of his hand in days gone by. That same God is with you now.
