1 I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you — the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
The Lord is watching over my life. More than that – He is my back up! My help comes from the Lord! The One who made the universe is the One who helps me in my life. This is amazing! Who am I that He would concern Himself with me? And yet He does! He will not let my foot slip… he will keep me from all harm… He is the One who protects me. He watches over my life, my coming and going, today and forever.
What a resource… what a friend! My life needs to reflect this truth. If God leads me to do something – I can proceed without fear because He is watching over my life! My prayer life needs to reflect this truth too. I need to include God and seek His wisdom in every aspect of my life.
Lord – Thank You for being my Shield and my Strong Tower! Thank You for watching over my life. Regardless of what comes I can live in confidence that You see what’s going on and You will strengthen and uphold me. You will not let my foot slip. Thank You for loving me! I love You.
