From Psalm 133, we see that strife and division are not God’s plan for our lives, but because sin entered our world, discord is the norm. We remember on this day so many years ago that Jesus took on the burden of sin for all mankind, dying on a roughly hewn cross so that He could bring us back into a right relationship with Him. His plans have always been for blessing and favor. So today in the midst of so much uncertainty around us, we can be certain that God is for us and has guaranteed the eternal future (133:3) of all who trust in the work of Jesus upon the cross. Our eyes rightly fixed, not on our present realities but on God’s eternal promises, causes us to lift up our hands in holy reverence, humility, and submission and declare that God is worthy of all blessing and honor.
