I was reading Psalm 121 this morning and the word that came to mind was "secure". The same Lord who made heaven and earth watches over us. He is our help. He protects us. And he doesn't fall asleep on the job. He is ever-present in our lives.
I think my favorite part of this verse, though, is that he won't let our foot slip. Friends, I am one of the least graceful people you know! And sometimes that tendency to stumble pushes into my spiritual life. I trip over my emotions. I fumble over what others say. I wobble with insecure thoughts. BUT GOD promises here he won't let our foot slip. When we lean into his hold, he keeps us secure. Some days I just need to remember that truth!
I pray we both stand firm in him today:)
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
