Some people look to friends, family, bosses, banks and a whole lot of other people, places and things when troubles, trials and tribulations hit. We have a tendency to look to people who can’t help us out of the dramas and traumas of life, and if they do help us it’s a temporary fix. It’s like putting a band-aid over a wound that requires surgery or stitches.
However, Psalm 121 gives us the solution to all our problems. It recommends that we lift our eyes to the hills from whence cometh our true help, help that is only from the Lord who made heaven and earth. Unlike others who will allow you to be uprooted before they try to help. God will not suffer your foot to be moved, stumble, slip or let you fall. Why? Because, He does not get any glory, praise or thanks when we are unhappy and miserable; and His eyes are always on the righteous.
The phenomenal thing about our God is that he never slumbers or sleep, as Psalm 121:4 points out. Therefore, we don’t have to worry about anything happening that He will not see or hear. Psalm 46:1 reminds us that He is our present help in times of trouble. Philippians 4:19 reminds us that He is the supplier of all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. We’ll go back to Psalm 121:5-8, here He reminds us that He is our keeper, He is the shade upon our right hand. The sun or moon does not affect us, He makes sure of that. Just imagine if He didn’t control the sun or moon – we would burn up.
(Psalm 121:7) He preserves us from all evil and He shall preserve our souls. That’s why He also reminds us in Isaiah 54:17 that no weapon formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises against us we condemn because this is the right of His children. In Psalm 37:1 He tells us not to fret about evil doers because they will be cut down as the grass.
In Psalm 121:8 He said, He will preserve your going out and coming in, from when you were born until He takes you home to glory. So no matter what happens from now on look to God, trust God, rely on God, depend on God – He never fails.
God never slumbers or sleep, so why should we have sleepless nights because of stress or worry. Since He preserves our going out and coming in at all times why aren’t we trusting Him more?
