The Lord Is Your Keeper

I lift up my eyes to the hills.

    From where does my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,

    who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;

    he who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, he who keeps Israel

    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;

    the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day,

    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;

    he will keep your life.

The Lord will keep

    your going out and your coming in

    from this time forth and forevermore.

~Psalm 121

From my home surrounded by “quiet oak” trees, I take time each morning to lift up my eyes to the hills that are part  of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.  And as I do, I think of these words from Psalm 121.  Amazing words of the Lord’s care, protection and grace that have filled the hearts of God’s people with confidence for generations.  The Lord’s help isn’t with you and I one day and gone the next.  It keeps us safe from evil 24/7…day and night…in all our comings and goings.  May you and I lift up our eyes, each new day, to the Lord who is our keeper.
