MY HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD

Psalm 121

 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,

from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD,

which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:

He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, He that keepeth Israel

shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is thy keeper:

the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day,

nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:

He shall preserve thy soul.

The LORD shall preserve thy going out

and thy coming in

from this time forth,

and even for evermore

.

I am so glad the Lord will help us everyday,

and always,  from here to eternity.

He giveth us “all things” that pertain “unto life and godliness”.

 Divine help is readily available as this Psalm describes.

The Lord is a very present help in the

time of trouble.

 He isn’t a God that is afar off on a journey

and neither is our God taking a nap somewhere.

 He’s neither slumbering nor sleeping.

He is very aware of what’s going on in our lives.

Some years ago we were leaving Memphis in the motorhome

and the pastor and his family

were leading us to the interstate.

We had just said our goodbyes at the restaurant and we had

only been on the highway for a few minutes.

 I was looking ahead and was just praying and

asking the Lord for a safe trip,

when a man in a metallic emerald green Mercedes convertible

with light colored leather seats,

pulled out right in front of us from the on ramp!

 In those few fleeting seconds,

my mind acutely took in these details.

The driver of the car removed his newsboy cap

and placed it on the seat next to him and scratched his head.

 In that flash of time I cried out, “Jesus!”

 Of course he could not hear me,

but it was as if he did and must’ve looked into his rear view mirror

and immediately pulled over.

There is no way we would not have hit

that man in his beautiful Mercedes if he had not moved over when he did.

 The Lord was a very present help in the time of trouble!

 No doubt a fatality or fatalities would have happened if my

good Lord  had not intervened when He did.

Thankfully everything in life is not life threatening,

but divine help is needed nevertheless.

In every and in any situation,

“My help cometh from the Lord.”
