How thankful I am this morning for His promises and faithfulness to me! The Lord directed me to Psalm 121 as I woke up today. “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.”
It baffles me that the God of the universe is able to watch little ol’ me day and night. Along with everyone and everything else He has to deal with, He still knows my thoughts, my movements, my challenges and my struggles. He is my help! He is the maker of heaven and earth yet He still concerns Himself with my daily life. He is never off duty. He is always on the throne and His promises are always good.
I wonder how our lives would change if we truly believed what He says. We would have no fear, no doubt, no anxiety, no frustration and no concern for the future. We would be secure, solid and content; able to walk through any situation- knowing that He is in control, and has our best in mind.
Lord, help us to see Your hand in our daily lives. We are so blessed that you have our backs in every situation. You hold us in the palm of your hand. You see our days before we wake! Help us to let go and trust you.
