“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 121:7-8 (NIV)
It is a blessing and a gift from God that he has given to us the book of Psalms. In them we find many promises to help us in our lives each day. Today’s selection tells us that the Lord will watch over us and keep an eye on our movements and activities. It means of course that He sees what we are doing. God knows all that is going on in this world but our promise means more than that. When God watches over us He is also protecting us. He is keeping us from harm. Yes, my friend, if you are a child of God, He will protect you from harm – this is especially critical in a time when many more are and becoming hostile toward those who believe in Jesus Christ. As we look to Him for guidance He will lead us in the right way as we moved around in life. This is a promised from the One who is faithful.
