Trusting God's Protection

Psalm 121:1-8 NKJV‬

[1] I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? [2] My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. [3] He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. [4] Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. [5] The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. [6] The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. [7] The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. [8] The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.


Good morning Ekklesia,


Today, let us look again at Psalm 121, a passage that speaks deeply about our trust in God's unwavering protection. As we journey through this Psalm, may it strengthen our faith and renew our hope in the Lord.


The Psalmist begins by lifting their eyes to the hills, recognizing that their help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Likewise, we are reminded that our help comes from the Almighty, the Creator of all things. In a world full of uncertainties, our ultimate refuge is found in God alone.


The Psalm continues, assuring us that the Lord will not let our foot slip, and He who watches over us will not slumber. How comforting it is to know that the God who holds the universe in His hands never sleeps nor grows weary. He is always attentive to our needs, constantly watching over us with His loving care.


As we meditate further, the Psalmist declares, "The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand." Here, we find the assurance of God's protection, His presence surrounding us like a sheltering shade. Even in the midst of life's trials and challenges, we can rest assured that God is with us, shielding us from harm.


Moreover, the Psalmist proclaims, "The Lord will keep you from all harm—He will watch over your life." This is a powerful declaration of God's faithfulness. Though troubles may arise, we can trust that God is our guardian, guiding us through every circumstance and preserving us from all evil.


In the final verses, the Psalmist concludes with a timeless truth: "The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore." Our journey, our comings, and goings are under God's watchful eye, both now and for all eternity.


So, let us take heart, Ekklesia, and place our trust fully in the Lord. In every season of life, let us lift our eyes to the hills, knowing that our help comes from the Lord alone. May we rest in the assurance of His unfailing love and protection, for He is our ever-present help in times of need.


May your day be blessed, In Jesus name, amen.
