The LORD, Our Help
Date Posted: August 7, 2020

I lift my eyes to the hills—

Where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,

The Maker of heaven and earth.

The Psalmist asks and answers a basic question of humanity. He realizes his help comes from the creator, not the creation.

He will not let your foot slip—

He who watches over you will not


The LORD will not let us fall into sin. He does not sleep lightly.

indeed, he who watches over Israel

Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Psalmist intensifies his thought of the LORD always being alert to our needs.

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.

Our Creator keeps close tabs on us, His children. He protects us from the elements throughout the day and the 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.

The LORD keeps us safe from ALL harm, watching over our lives, our movements each day from when we are conceived until our time here on earth is finished.
