Who’s Going to Help Us?

Who’s going to help us?

Psalm 121

1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.s2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

We have all walked through some difficult times. Times of danger, overwhelming burdens, etc.  The lessons taught in this Psalm will help all us travel our pilgrimage as a child of God.

The Source of Our Help

5 times the helper is identified as The Lord

The hills, in this time, were where people ent to worship false gods

The Psalmist is not looking at the hills, he’s looking beyond the hills

The word “Yahweh” is a covenant Name of God

The never changing, always there, the only God

The Scope of Our Help

He helps those who slip

He promises to never leave us, or forsake us

He is our keeper

He watches over us

He protects us

He sees us through until we are safely home

He helps those who sleep

He knows it’s easy to slip, He knows it’s also easy to sleep

Sometimes we become over-burdened

Sometimes we will become passive

We can turn our burdens over to Him

He helps those who struggle

He protects you from your enemies

He protects you from the elements

The Strength of Our Help

You are preserved from Evil

You are preserved for Eternity

Who’s going to help us?  The Lord is, and He is the only One Who can!
