Encouragement for the Week: Psalm 121

P.S.
"We shouldn’t be surprised to know that God is part of every aspect of our lives. He’s not too busy (He doesn’t sleep), uninterested (He’s here with us), high and mighty (He’s a servant-King), overloaded (He knows the names of all the stars) or ambivalent (He gave His best for us) to be connected to the small stuff. While He is a “big picture God,” He’s “intimately acquainted with all our ways.” Psalm 139:3. God is specific (check out all the genealogies and lists in the Bible). He is into microscopic things. He first split the atom. And there is no detail in your life today too small for Him to know and care about." (from PASSION 2010 blog)




Psalm 121
The LORD Our Protector
A song of ascents.
1 I raise my eyes toward the mountains.
Where will my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber.

4 Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep.

5 The LORD protects you;
the LORD is a shelter right by your side.
6 The sun will not strike you by day,
or the moon by night.

7 The LORD will protect you from all harm;
He will protect your life.

8 The LORD will protect your coming and going
both now and forever.
(Holman Christian Standard Bible)
