Tap here for a video-meditation on Psalm 132.
A joyous restlessness comes upon the pilgrims as they recall David’s sleeplessness until he finds a place for God to rest. Feel their anticipation as they come closer to Jerusalem and the Temple.
Jesus will reign not from the Temple, but from the cross in the center of Calvary’s hill. From there he will come down, resting for a brief time in the tomb, then on to resurrection, ascension to the Father’s right hand, and descent in the Holy Spirit. The Lord seeks to rest in your own soul—his preferred temple. God will indeed find this place if you stop using your hands to build any kingdom other than God’s.
Rest in Jesus and he will rest in you. Then you will do great things for the Lord, for God will be the one doing the work in and through you.
