Monday Psalm for February 7, 2011

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
   From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
   who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;
   he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is your keeper;
   the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
   nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all evil;
   he will keep your life.
The LORD will keep
   your going out and your coming in
   from this time forth and forevermore. – Psalm 121 (ESV)

Just a reminder as we begin another week, filled with all the busyness of life and work and family… When problems come, when stress sets in, when troubles beset you, keep in mind that what want you see is not necessarily a clear picture of what is going on.  Instead of focusing on life’s trials, remember that we are called to live by faith, not by sight (Galatians 3:10-12, Hebrews 10:38).  The Lord God is our keeper, our protector, our sustainer.  After all, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31, ESV).  Trust in, rely in, rest in the Lord this week (and always).  He will keep you forevermore.

If you know someone who would be blessed by this message (or any of Chris’ other messages), please feel free to share this.  Please also tell your family and friends about the website: https://bouvillediarist.wordpress.com/  Thank you and have a blessed week!
