Day 2 Read: Psalm 46:4-5
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
Reflect: According to the psalmist, for what reason will the city of God never be moved?
Consider: God’s favor is denoted by a river (compare Ps 36:8; Zec 14:8; Rev 22:1). City of God, the holy place—His earthly residence, Jerusalem and the temple (compare Ps 2:6, 3:4; 20:2; 48:2, &c.). God’s favor, like a river whose waters are conducted in channels, is distributed to all parts of His Church.
Respond: What daily practices or spiritual disciplines make God’s presence most vivid to you? How do those practices tend to shape your actions as you go throughout your day?
