I spent some time today meditating on one of the Psalms of the Day (a method I learned from Don Whitney where you take today’s date, the 1st, and add 30 4 times, to get 5 Psalms of the Day for each day of the month to use. So, today’s Psalms of the Day were: 1, 31, 61, 91, and 121.) in this case Psalm 121. This is a passage our body has memorized together in the past. And, it’s an encouraging revealing of God:
He’s our Helper
AND, He never sleeps
He’s our Keeper
AND, He will be forever.
This intersected nicely with the Valley of Vision prayer “Victory” which ended by saying:
When thou art absent all sorrows are here,
When thou art present all blessings are mine.
Today, you may not be aware of your need for help, so you might bow your knee before your Maker and consider what this self-reliance might reveal. For the rest of us, though, we come clinging to Him. And, as this Psalm (and prayer) suggests, we can rely on Him to help.
Would you pray that God’s help would come to me in these days?
