My Eyes Look Up to Thee……

Psalm 121 A Song of Ascents. I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help?

God the Help of Those Who Seek Him

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 121:1-8 NKJV)

Trust in the Lord dear brethren for our God is not dead. He’s surely alive living inside of you even if you feel and think as if he is not near. He is! Emotions will get the best of us. Stand on the Word and don’t behave as if you don’t know how powerful and majestic the Great I AM is.

Do not put trust in your emotions. They come and go as the waves in the ocean; up and down. The Bible tells us:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (Proverbs 3:5 NKJV)

Call on Him. Blow your trumpet and let your aid be made known! You need him more than anyone. Some days may grow long and weary and seem as if the light at the end of the tunnel may never shine, but I’m here to tell you that HELP is on the way. Be patient and wait on the Lord. His timing is never too early or too late. He comes right on time! TRUST and BELIEVE that you will be rescued.

Psalm 121 has personally been one of my favorite scriptures that I have embedded in my heart and trusted in since I gave my life to Christ years ago. He IS my help in times of trouble. I look UP and CALL on him because I KNOW HE is able to come through for me when I let my basket of cares be made known.

Friends, whatever it is that you are in need of, it would behoove you to let it go and give it to God. Trust that his hand is already at work. Plead your case and leave it at the alter. Amidst waiting for your rescue, count it joy as your wait with patience. The Lord is doing a great thing on the inside of you.

  1. All of my elders would always quote part, or all, of Psalm 121 to me whenever I became depressed about my geekiness while growing up! Bless you for basing your post today on this Psalm. It continues to lighten my load every day!

    • Well praise the Lord for this granbee! The seed was planted in you long ago. How blessed I feel to partake in lightening your load. This post was refreshing to my soul. God is wonderful and I can’t thank him enough for being the greatest Refuge in our lives.

  2. That is one of my little guy’s favorite songs…”My God’s Not Dead” What a great post! Of course He is alive and we need to rejoice in that and turn ourselves over to Him daily (at the very least!)

  3. Love it our God is a consuming fire and He never takes His eyes off of His children for one second. He is very much alive and coming back real soon.

    • You are timely with the added scriptures Eugene! I actually was reading the very same scriptures along with the Psalm over the weekend.Thank you very much for the reminder. ( thank you Lord for sending it to me twice ) You have a great day too my friend!

  4. Terra, Psalms 121, awesome word of God. If we could just truly trust in Him when we feel overwhelmed,fearful and weary. I posted on this same scripture a week ago. Very Powerful scripture indeed.

    I love the photos used to illustrate the word of God. The lion reminds me of Daniel in the Lion’s Den. Daniel was a great man of faith and prayer. When he was faced between praying to God or facing death for his beliefs, he was faithful to God. He was protected all night by an angel when he was thrown in a den of lions. We have his example to be faithful and stand up for God. Amen.
