A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains--
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip--
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you--
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm--
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
BE ENCOURAGED ~
Your help comes from the Lord
As I read the Bible, I find scriptures of hope, encouragement and I see that the favor of God is on my life. Each day is a gift from God to us. I see that the Lord watches over me and I know that my choices matter too. I have been taught right from wrong. I have made a decision to do what is right. I challenge myself daily to become a better person and leave the bitter part of life alone. There are ups and downs for each of us. Let us keep our eyes on God, doing what is right and not letting things stress us out. Life is so short and I know this too well.
BE ENCOURAGED ~
There are times of life when we must encourage ourselves.
1 Samuel 30:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
David knew he was facing a man who wanted to stone him. He turned to God for his strength and God answered. Can you think of a time in life when something was very hard and God answered? I can think of many impossible things and yet God turned them to possible in a good way. I have seen the power of God work and answer my prayers. I have learned to trust him over time and grow in knowledge of his word and promises. I was once young and now I'm older to see so many prayers answered. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Purpose this a good day!
