My Help

Image result for psalm 121My devotional reading this morning was found in Psalm 121. This is one of my favorite psalms.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    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 sleep.

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 life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.


Knowing that the Lord will always be there with me gives me great comfort. I’m not alone even when I feel the most alone. He will never leave me.

You’re not alone so don’t try to do life on your own. Rather, rejoice in the earthly and eternal care of God as demonstrated in the life, death, resurrection and ascension on the Lord Jesus Christ. And whatever the next steps, take them with His help.
