A song of ascents.
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 for evermore.
The words of Psalm 121 are a great comfort to believers even today. To be reassured that the God who
created you cares enough about you, as an individual, to keep a protective eye on your daily activities is
wonderful. But what about the times when we feel abandoned? The times when we feel like the ground
beneath us is crumbling and God is perhaps too busy elsewhere to be concerned about our little life?
Those are the times when we need to read those words and see them as more than comfort, they are in
fact a promise. Jesus said to His disciples, and therefore to his followers today, “And surely I am with you
always, to the very end of the age.” Life may not always be easy, we were never promised that, but we
are not expected to live God’s will in our own strength, our ‘help comes from the Lord’ in many diverse
ways, sometimes we just have to be willing to accept it.
