Saturday, July 16th: Psalm 120, 121, 123, 125, 128, 129 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalm 120, 121, 123, 125, 128, 129

I love Psalm 121 and it's one of the first chapters I memorized when I started scripture memory a couple years ago (a practice I should really re-start!).  

This psalm expresses utmost hope and confidence in God's protection - day and night!  (It's a good Psalm to read over your children if they are having trouble sleeping at night).  Our God is so powerful - not only did He make the hills, He made the entire heavens and earth!  We should never trust a lesser power than our all powerful Creator.  

But He is not only powerful.  He is also compassionate towards us, watching over us day and night.  He is always aware of everything going on in our lives.  He knows when we are anxious or afraid.  He knows when we are angry or upset.  He knows when we are tired or overwhelmed.  He knows exactly what we need all the time.  And He is the only Source that can provide the answer for what we need. He is our source of peace, strength, comfort, and hope.  So often we forget to turn to Him in those moments, at least not right away.  May we learn to turn to Him first and foremost, declaring "My help comes from the Lord!"

I like this Psalm as well, it mentions how God watches over us all the time, and He never sleeps or takes a break. The Lord watches over us day and night and keeps us from harm, both now and forever. The mistakes we make in life are ours, not mistakes God makes. What an awesome God, and one we can put complete trust in!
