The Lord, The Shade at My Right Hand – My Daily Bread!
The power and majesty of our God brings us to praise Him for His protection and faithfulness with the words found in Psalm 121. It reads:
“I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
What a beautiful expression of God’s protection and loving concern for His Saints! Be encouraged for the Lord has His eye on you, He will not let your foot slip for He watches over your life both now and forever! These beautiful words of comfort can sooth our soul when our hearts are troubled for they remind us of who we are in Christ.
“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9) Rejoice in the timelessness of God’s love, a love that watches over you with a jealous passion; for you belong to the King, and “whoever touches you touches the apple of His eye.” (Zechariah 2:8)
