Praise God for Help and Strength

John Collins05/16/2012
Psalms 121 Praises the Lord for His help and strength.

Let's read it, placing ourselves in the words of the songwriter:

I lift up my eyes to the mountains searching for help.  Where does my help come from?  

My help comes from the Lord God.  He is the Maker of everything.  He made both the heavens and the earth, and He is able to care for me.

He will not even let us slip.  He watches over our every step, and everything I do is according to His perfect will.  He watches over me at all times, never sleeping.

He protects us from everything.  He is like a shade at our right hands, protecting us from even the sun.  The sun will not harm us by day nor the moon by night.  God is always shielding me from all danger.

The Lord God will keep me from all harm.  He is the one who watches over my entire life, from birth to death.  He will watch my coming to protect me.  He will protect me all through my life.  He will protect me as I'm leaving this life.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Are we comforted by these words?  Do we think we are all alone, no one to help us when the world comes against us?  Do we not realize that He makes everything, watches everything, and all things work together for good to them that love the Lord?
