2 Samuel 21:1-22:20 / Acts 1:1-26 / Psalm 121:1-8 / Proverbs 16:18
Psalm 121: 1-8
“I look up to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the One who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, He who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.”
This Psalm is a beautiful declaration of truth! Yet another place in the Word where the Lord tells us HE IS WITH US – WE ARE NOT ALONE! It’s nearly impossible to read Psalm 121 and not feel loved.
The enemy will do all he can to make us feel unloved, overlooked, forgotten and alone - like God doesn’t care about us. If we allow those whispers to enter our minds and hearts, we will be taken out by hopelessness and discouragement. The enemy knows that if he can get us to listen to him everyday (instead of the Lord), we will be quickly disarmed and defeated. His strategy is to distract us and keep us so busy we don’t have time for our relationship with the Lord. Then he lies to us and tries to build a wall around our hearts to separate us from our Heavenly Father.
We need to say, “NO WAY” to that! This is why it is VITAL to be filling ourselves with GOD’S TRUTH EVERYDAY! THE TRUTH WILL NOT ONLY SET US FREE, IT WILL STRENGTHEN US AND BRING HEALTH TO OUR BONES!
Lord, thank You for Your word! Thank You for Your TRUTH on which we can confidently stand! Thank You that WE ARE NOT ALONE! YOU NEVER SLEEP! You DON’T FORGET US! YOU ARE ALWAYS WATCHING OVER OUR LIVES!! That good truth should fuel us and fire us up to live strong!
