My Help Comes From the Lord

Psalm 121:1-8  (ID: 3215)

Although too frequently we fail to admit it, the cry of the human heart is “Help!” Alistair Begg reminds us that the Christian’s help comes from God, whose knowledge, power, and ability to save are unlimited. Whether we are experiencing comfort or difficulty, we can be confident that in all of life, we can rest in the providential care of our Father, who works in all things for good.


My Help Comes from the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

1I lift up my eyes to the hills.

From where does my help come?

2My help comes from the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

3He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

4Behold, he who keeps Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

5The Lord is your keeper;

the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

6The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

7The Lord will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

8The Lord will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time forth and forevermore.
