The Keeper

                Psalm 121 is one of my favorite psalms in the entire Bible. In this psalm my soul finds hope and strength amid the troubles and tribulations of this life. I can face all my tomorrows knowing that God is not only my Lord and Savior, but He is also my Keeper.  

In this beloved Psalm, I find three things. First, I see many,

Problems:                                                                                                                                                          Desperation— “From whence comes my help?”
Danger— “He will not allow your foot to be moved (to slip)”
Destruction— “The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night”                                                      Devilish evil— “The Lord shall preserve you from all evil”

In This Psalm we also encounter the,     

Presence:                                                                                                                                                            In the mountain of Zion— “I will lift up my eyes to the hills”                                                                                  Of the God of the Universe— Who made heaven and earth.”                                                                            Of the God that keeps us— “The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.”

Finally, we also find the,

Promise:                                                                                                                                                              God is our Helper—“My help comes from the Lord”                                                                                            His help is continuous— “He who keeps you will not slumber…Shall neither slumber nor sleep”                      God keeps our soul safe— “He shall preserve your soul.”                                                                                  God keeps our life— “The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.”                                                                                                       
God keeps his peopleBehold, He who keeps Israel
