Today’s Reading: Psalms 120-131
Today’s Reflection: Psalms 121:7-8
7) The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. 8) The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
This text comes in a Psalm titled “My Help Comes from the Lord”. It reminds us of a simple yet profound fact: Though life is filled with wickedness, darkness, challenges and trials, God is ready, willing and able to guide you each step of the way.
There are many who acknowledge that God made the world and everything in it, but don’t realize He desires to connect with and relate to His creation. God didn’t merely begin the world then leave us to our own devices. From Adam and Eve until now, God has desired to lead and protect men and women through their lives, day by day, moment by moment.
We should be grateful that at every minute—from our going out to our coming in—we are on God’s mind. He is completely aware of the events and circumstances of our lives, and He has already made preparation for the things we can’t even see coming.
You have no need to fear anything in your life, for the Lord Himself will keep you.
Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
