Psalm 122

Psalm 122 was originally written by David to celebrate the physical pilgrimage to worship the Lord at the tabernacle at Mount Zion, but it’s fitting for us today even though we cannot gather corporately to worship the Lord together in a building. This is not an out-of-date song of celebration but one that invites us into intimate worship with the Lord regardless of our physical location. We, too, can celebrate that we are invited to enter into a sacred space where our eyes are rightly fixed upon Jesus — and the heavenly Jerusalem He is preparing for us. We declare, “You, O Lord, are worthy.”
