Psalm 87

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.”

God stands behind the city which he founded. Strength, dignity, and upon the rock it stands. It's gates hold the stories of our fathers and our father's fathers. They are high and broad, and should remind us of the blessing if God each time we enter. Remind each other of the wonderful stories each time we walk past them together.

There are many that are amazing. New York, Boston, Miami, L.A., San Francisco all of whom many important people have been born in and died. Yet God will bring about one. A spring, a place of life where none would expect. All will enjoy, dance and sing of all that rises up!
