personal notes on psalm 121


I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from?

I look up… is there anyone who can help me?


My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

My Creator sees me; He knows, he cares, he will rescue me!


He will not let your foot slip– he who watches over you will not slumber;

God is always awake and watching over my path.


indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

He is on duty 24/7; guarding and watching over his people.


The LORD watches over you– the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

I can take comfort in the shade of his protection; he’s got me!


the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

Natural threats (pandemic) and disasters will not harm me ultimately.


The LORD will keep you from all harm– he will watch over your life;

My life is hidden in God; I belong to him and he keeps me safe.


the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

He will be with us through all our life’s journey into eternity.

    Just so amazing is our Lord and Saviour. I always find strength in this and many other Psalms.
