A Song of Ascents

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

Imagine David in the midst of battle, looking to the hills and hoping for reinforcement —
“From whence comes my help?”

He answers his own question —
“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth”

He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
– Psalm 121 (NKJV)

As with David your help comes from God. When you question how life’s difficulties will be resolved, remember Psalm 121 and be encouraged.
