“As they make music they will sing,
‘All my fountains are in You.'” – Psalm 87:7
Psalm 87 was written by the temple assistants, the Sons of Korah, and was written about the City of God – the place where all believers will one day gather, and is looking ahead to the Holy City as described in Revalation 21:10-27. It will be an amazing sight when the day comes! The city is described as being 1400 miles square, and as long and wide as it is high! Imagine a 1400 square mile city, full of the worship of God’s children! A city without night, lit only by the glory of God! That will be a wondrous sight!
Yet although this verse is describing the glory after Christ’s return, it also describes what we should strive for while on this earth!
“All of my fountains are in You!”
This is the place we shall strive and long to be. I long to be in the place while on this earth where I know I have no other options besides leaning completely and totally on Him, and having “all my fountains” invested in Him. Heaven will be a wondrous sight, yet what is stopping us from showing heavenly praise while on earth?
Lord, take me to the place with no other options
take me to the heart of You!
For as this world tries me, I learn of my weakness
and my strength, found only in You!
Take me to the place where my spring finds it’s origin,
and let that origin be You!
Not my strength, but Yours alone can sustain me,
For in my trials I rejoice of You!
