Bible Ballistics: “BBs” #27 Help Part 2
As we continue our thoughts on Psalm 121, I am reminded through tear-filled eyes, how grateful I am for the God who is my help. That the God who is ‘my help’ never fails, even when I do. That HE will provide when I’m broken, hurt and weeping. That HE knows the tears and the fears and can calm both. That HE said all things DO ‘work together for good’, to those who love God and belong to HIM. Have you called on HIM to be ‘YOUR’ God through Jesus?
Let’s continue our look at Psalm 121:4-8
“4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep”.
My God-the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-is always there. I don’t have to check His ‘business hours’ to see if He is available. I can ‘pray without ceasing’, day or night and know that He hears and cares.
“5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.”
My God keeps me safe in His hand. He is my shade, my place of rest and comfort when I’m hurting—like right now!!!
“6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.”
My God keeps me from harm (not from experience, see Romans 5:1-9)—from the elements, from life, from the ‘fiery darts’ that come at me, even when they come from unexpected places, and cause excruciating pain.
“7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.”
My God preserves me for HIS purposes. As Paul said to the Philippians, “…He which hath begun a good work in you will complete it….” Phil 2:6.
“8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore”.
My God never gives up on or quits working in and through HIS OWN.
So? Here’s our shot for the day. God’s got you covered!!
