My Help comes from the Lord

12 10 2008

Hear this word of comfort from the psalmist:

I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will
not slumber;

indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor

The LORD watches over you — the LORD is your shade at your
right hand;

the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your

the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and
(Psalm 121:1-8 NIV)

If you believe those words …

Admit it.
Don’t be afraid to acknowledge that you know where your help, your
strength for the day, and your energy comes from. It comes from the
Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Talk about it.
In a loving and gentle, yet confident way, tell others that you know
that He is watching over you, that He will not let your foot slip, and
that He is not sleeping through your life.

Remember it.
Remember that the Lord is watching over you in the morning when the sun
is rising, in the evening when the moon is shining, and at all times in
between. Remember it when you are refreshed and protected by the shade
of refreshment that the Lord provides.

Live it.
Live like the Lord is keeping you from harm. Live with confidence and
hope. Live it as you come and go to work, walk into your home,
fellowship with your church friends, as you relax, and as you encounter
stressful times.

Live with confidence and hope.

Admit it. The Lord is watching over you. Talk about it. Remind others
that He is also watching over them. Remember it. In good days and
difficult days take comfort that He is not only conscious of your life,
but is going with you as you experience it. Live it. Demonstrate the
hope you have in Him and His care for you.

If you do, not only will your days be filled with peace and comfort and
hope and confidence, but you will inspire others to live with peace and
comfort and hope and confidence as well.
