Psalm 121- For Those Who Need Comfort Today

121

A Song of Ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the hills.


From where does my help come?


2 My help comes from the LORD,


who made heaven and earth.


3 He will not let your foot be moved;


he who keeps you will not slumber.


4 Behold, he who keeps Israel


will neither slumber nor sleep.


5 The LORD is your keeper;


the LORD is your shade on your right hand.


6 The sun shall not strike you by day,


nor the moon by night.


7 The LORD will keep you from all evil;


he will keep your life.


8 The LORD will keep


your going out and your coming in


from this time forth and forevermore.



I don't have much to say today. I have decided to take the day off from the office so I could spend time at home with my family. We had a memorial service for my father last week out-of- state, and today some of our friends are burying their son. I know others who are suffering from sickness, broken relationships, and exhaustion. I find comfort in Psalm 121. We used to sing a worship song based on this Psalm, and it gets stuck in my head sometimes. "My help comes from the LORD." When I believe those words, I know that I am not alone and that I am not forgotten. When you believe, I hope you find your hope in God and find rest in His promises for you.
