Message for February 21, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper, the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.  Psalm 121:1-8
      Lifting our eyes is linked to the reality of God and his majesty and his Sovereignty.  David knew his help came from God.  He lived in the hills and mountains and it was there he became intimately acquainted with God. 
      When one travels today security is taken into consideration. David shares thoughts like these Psalm 121.  He considered where he might find protection for his journey.  He found it in the Lord.  
      When I read this passage of scripture it reminds me that while on this journey called life I have the watchful eye of God always watching over me.  He is my security blanket.
       The Lord is, our Helper, our Keeper, our Protector and our Hope.  Lift your eyes to the One who has got you and will never let you go!
