Psalm 121 in our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan for today says this:
This is one of the "Songs of Ascents" that the Jewish people would have sung on their way to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feasts of the Lord! Notice the promises that belonged to these believers under the Old Covenant! They trusted that the LORD would NOT allow them to fail! He would not allow even their foot to slip! The God Who never sleeps had promised to keep them! "Keep" is the Hebrew word "shamar", which means: to hedge about, to guard, to protect, to attend to. They had that promise, even under their Covenant BEFORE Messiah came! Notice that this promise included protecting them from the elements, from evil, and to do so in every area of their lives - FOREVER! What was the prerequisite? To lift up their eyes to HIM! We KNOW that we have a better Covenant that is based on better promises than they had (Hebrews 8:6)! Better promises than this! So, let's at LEAST expect these promises of protection, provision and safety to be ours, also, IF we are looking to HIM, and to HIM alone, as our Source of supply and of every good thing! And let's continue to dig into the Word of God to find out what those BETTER promises are! AMEN! Here is Hillsong UNITED with "Say The Word":
Shalom in Him!
