Psalm 121 – My Help Comes from the Lord
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.
Linda, what a perfect post, with the Psalm and the song. God gave me that Psalm too, at a very difficult time in my life. Thank you so much for ministering to us in the midst of your own storm. God bless you as you look to Him.
Deb, It is a wonderful Psalm! It is such a comfort to know God loves us so. Peace, Linda
Love the Psalm and song
