Join me in reading through the Bible in One Year! We will follow a reading plan together and go beyond just reading the Bible, to studying it. We will post about the passage and learn from each other as we grow in our walk with the Lord.
Join me in the pursuit of discernment!
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!"
