Yesterday one of my fellow bloggers, April from over at Thoughts from the Porch, commented on my post and suggested that I read Psalm 121. I happened to be out shopping with my son, waiting for him to finish getting something for his best friend’s birthday at Game Trader, when I read her comment. I have a YouVersion Bible app on my phone, so I went right to Psalm 121 and read it. What a wonderful comfort the words of this Psalm are.
In the midst of trials and struggles – and King David knew plenty of trial and struggles – we can always look to the Lord. It is from Him that our help comes.
I was very surprised when I checked my blog and discovered that I had never posted this psalm for Psalm Sunday, so I decided I would for today. I hope it blesses you as much as it did me.
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
As I read this Psalm yesterday, I could hear the first verse set to music in my head. I had to do a little searching to remember what song it is from, but I finally found Praise You in This Storm by Casting Crowns. So I thought I would add it to this post also.
