It’s easy in life to succumb to the pressure and stress it gives. We sometimes look for help and hope in the wrong places and can be overcome with desperation. We search for reassurance within our world which can give us the wrong answers, that ultimately lead us astray. It is important to look to the Lord everything.
Our Heavenly Father made the heavens and the earth. He is capable of caring for us and carrying our burdens when we are at our weakest. And that is why in hardship we turn to him, Psalm 121:2 says “My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
Verse 3 continues to inform us that he watches over us always; “He will not let your foot slip- he who watches over you will neither slumber nor sleep.” Our Heavenly Father never sleeps, never goes on holidays, like our closest friends do when we sometimes need them most. The Lord is constantly caring for us from his throne in heaven. That makes God the most reliant father or friend or carer. He is always ready to catch you when you fall.
I want to finish with, even though sometimes we stress, grieve and fall into the ways of sin, the Lord has had a plan for us since the beginning of time. He has watched over us since before we were born and he will watch over us until we die, even afterward as we meet him in heaven with eternal life. We are told this in Psalm 121:8 “The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
Look to the Lord he is with us 24/7, he has a plan for us and has loved and cared for us since the beginning of time, and nothing is too big or too small for God to tend to and protect you from.
