I lift my eyes up to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and creator of 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 forevermore. Psalm 121
Often we may feel like we’re just treading water, or some of us might even feel like we’re beginning to slip below the waves of life’s troubles. This verse is a reminder that if we look to Jesus, he will save us in times of trouble, and he will only give us as much as we can handle. This is a very encouraging verse for me.
