Psalm 87 (Listen)
87:1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
3 Glorious things of you are spoken,
O city of God. Selah
4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Cush—
“This one was born there,” they say.
5 And of Zion it shall be said,
“This one and that one were born in her”;
for the Most High himself will establish her.
6 The LORD records as he registers the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah
7 Singers and dancers alike say,
“All my springs are in you.”
The Lord records as he registers the peoples,“This one was born there.” Glorious things of you are spoken, O city of God. (Psalm 87:6)
Our God knows our name, isn’t that awe inspiring (Psalm 91:14)? In a world of 7.8 billion people, He knows you, your name, the hairs on your head, and even your thoughts before you speak them. He knows every human ever born and ever to be born. Wow! Let’s pause today and give thanks that He, the holy and almighty God, knows us personally and loves us dearly. This is a blessing worth meditating on today.
