PSALM 121 - Protection of God 2 Mar 2020
I am on my journey to Jerusalem. Many of my countrymen accompany me on the journey. There are few places to rest. I walk by day. I walk by night. There are dangers on my path.
God promises a safe coming and a safe going home. God guards me. Not just now. Forever.
God cares for me
The protection over my life and all my doings is certainly one thing where I experience the working of God in my life. Especially in the nights of my journey, I feel his presence. God is good to me.
1 [Song of Ascents] I lift up my eyes to the mountains;
where is my help to come from?
2 My help comes from Yahweh
who made heaven and earth.
3 May he save your foot from stumbling;
may he, your guardian, not fall asleep!
4 You see -- he neither sleeps nor slumbers,
the guardian of Israel.
5 Yahweh is your guardian,
your shade, Yahweh, at your right hand.
6 By day the sun will not strike you,
nor the moon by night.
7 Yahweh guards you from all harm
Yahweh guards your life,
8 Yahweh guards your comings and goings,
henceforth and for ever.
