Our Help Comes from the Lord

Psalm 121

Pastor –           1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.

From where does my help come?

Church –          2 My help comes from the LORD,

who made heaven and earth.

Pastor –           3  He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

Church –          4  Behold, he who keeps Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

Pastor –           5  The LORD is your keeper;

the LORD is your shade on your right hand.

6  The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

Church –          7  The LORD will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

Pastor –           8  The LORD will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time forth and forevermore.

We have NOTHING to fear because our help comes from the Lord.

  1. Our help comes from the Lord, the Creator.

“The threats which arise on the journey to Jerusalem arise within a world the Lord has made and which he sustains. In this world –not in some imaginary, idealistic world– God reigns supreme and triumphant. There is nothing in the world that threatens his rule.” –Derek Thomas
