I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. (Psalms 121:1-8)
Today's Morsel: The Psalmist seems to be aware of where his help came from. He seems to have a solid understanding of where to turn when things weren't going right for him. He said, "I will lift my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord." How must trust do you put in the Lord? Do you know where to turn when things aren't going right for you? I believe that every believer should memorize this Psalm and be able to quote it to themselves because it is such an encouraging passage when you have your back against the wall. This is one of the reasons I believe that the apostle Paul admonishes us to sing to ourselves Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord. We must remember that all scripture is inspired by God, and the things that were written afore were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures we might find hope.
Sing: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of this earth shall go strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.
Thought for Today: Never forget where your help comes from.
