Psalm

Psalm 133

How fitting to read as we ended yesterday with the Israelites coming together to celebrate David as King of Israel.  The tribes were united for a brief time.  David gives two examples to try to imagine how God must feel when His people are actually united as one body.

The oil running down the head of the High Priest.  The priest was the connection between God and his people.  God flowing down onto us directly.

Unity brings life that can thrive.  The dew that flowed down from Mt. Hermon.  God is represented in this Majestic Mountain, standing at almost 10,000 feet for everyone to see.  The Rock that brings life.  Mt. Hermon was the water source that fed into all the seas in the Promise land.  Mt. Hermon was the life of Jerusalem.

The downward flow of the oil and the dew represents the downward flow if God’s blessings on his people when we are united.

Imagine if we as a church were united??

 

Psalm 133

A song of ascents. Of David.

How good and pleasant it is
    when God’s people live together in unity!

It is like precious oil poured on the head,
    running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
    down on the collar of his robe.
 It is as if the dew of Hermon
    were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
    even life forevermore.

  1. Read a couple of commentaries, one on bible hub, the other in blue letter bible, on the dew of Heron. Such a beautiful description of how the dew refreshes the parched grown so that things can grow and the relationship imagery. Also, a reference to Philippians 2 about dwelling in unity. ❤️Thank you Patricia for this blog, it causes me to look deeper and get so much more from the Word, 🙏🏻 And prayers for you and your family, especially your child who is injured. God bless and keep you!🌹

    1. Thank you Pattio06, I am so grateful for your prayers. Today we got the go-ahead to take the brace off and start adding small activities back into her day. Your prayers were heard.

  2. It seems like I stay about 10 days behind. I will eventually catch up though. I will NOT give up! I’m sorry I’m not much of a “commenter”. However, even as short as this one was, it really spoke to my heart especially during this time. Unity….a good word to add to my prayers for our country, community, church, and families. Loved reading Phillipians 2 as well.

    Trish, your efforts do not go unappreciated! Thanks for your dedication!!!

    1. I was just commenting that I cannot believe you are all still on schedule (10 days behind is still on schedule!) without accountability. How do you do it?? I know God calls me to this because I need accountability! I would be such a slacker!
