He’ll Never Let Go

I love Psalm 121.

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.

The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.

The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in
From this time forth and forever.

 

It encourages me every time I read it.  It reminds me that there is always help when you walk with God.  It makes me feel really secure and sometimes really sad (when I shame God) to know He watches over me day and night.

 

This chapter from the Psalms is all about letting us know that nothing is just willy-nilly or spinning out of control.  It is all about the forward movement of God’s will.

 

I see trouble. God sees a chance to show himself strong.

 

I see no good thing in certain circumstances (especially when I can’t control it). God sees His providence aligning itself for a perfect work that comes from inward struggle.

 

I lose heart and can’t sleep. God says, “It’s okay. You sleep because I never sleep and I’m watching over you tonight.”

 

I leave for the day knowing I’m not able or fit enough to do what is before me.  God says He will not let me slip. He will help in all my comings and goings.

 

I worry about my tomorrows and my health, and my future and my family and everything!  God says both now and forevermore He is fully engaged in being my God, my refuge, my guard, my HELP!

 

I’m a total mess without God.  But He knows that and He never gives up on me.

Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?

Who do I turn to when nobody wants to listen?

Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable?

I go to the Rock, I know He’s able.

I go to the Rock
