“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth (Ps. 121:1-2).”
Heavenly Father, the mountains speak of your majesty. All of creation points to you as the King and Redeemer of our souls. When we lift our eyes up to the mountains, we know You are above it all. Your glory fills the sky.
You are our refuge in time of crisis. Please, rescue us from the trials we face. However, if it’s your will, give us strength and endurance to persevere. For you work out all things together for good to those who are called according to your marvelous plans. You are the maker of heaven and earth. O God, I trust in you!
“He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night (Ps. 121:3-6).”
Sovereign God, you will not let our feet slip. You are in complete control. You do not slumber or get tired like we mortal men do. You are the immortal, everlasting God that is full of infinite energy. God, I know you watch over us. You protect us from the evil one. You guard us against those who desire to entrap us in sin.
O Lord, truly you are the shade we are able to find shelter in. The sun, with it’s intense heat, will not be able to harm us. Neither will the moon by night. Because in every moment, whether in the heat of the day or the dark cool of the night, you are with us. You never leave or forsake us. Thanks for being such a good God!
“The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore (Ps. 121:7-8).”
Eternal King, you will keep us from harm. You watch over us like a hawk. When adversaries try to snatch us from you, you will be ready. You have guarded our souls. Your word tells us to trust in you with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. God, as we trust in you instead of our own faulty ways of thinking, you will guide our steps.
Holy Father, thank you for the covenant you have made with us. You said that no principality or power will ever be able to separate us from the love that is found in you. May we continue believing in this wonderful truth in the midst of a dark and corrupt world.
Finally, Lord Jesus, forgive us of our sins. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness. You said if we confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us of all our sins and cleanse. Thank you for all these truths. In Jesus’s mighty name. Amen.
