“I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.”Psalms 121:1-8 NKJV
I love this Psalm because it outlines very clearly where our help comes from…the Lord! He keeps our paths solid when there’s the possibility that they could be slippery. He is ALWAYS watching, and NEVER takes His Eyes off of us. He preserves us from evil, preserves our souls, and preserves our going out and coming in…AND he will do that forever!
One great thing about fasting is that it keeps our focus on where our true help and the source of our life is…in GOD! We can get so tuned in to our own thoughts and solutions that we sometimes can tune out God’s Sulutions to our lives. So today, remind yourself several times where your help is coming from for what you’re facing. No problem is so great that God can’t or won’t deliver us in the face of what seem to be insurmountable odds!
