I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Psalm 121:1-3
Our help doesn’t come from our flesh or our human ideas or creativity—it comes from God. When you face challenges in life, you can hide out and get depressed or you can turn to the Lord. Put your expectations back on the promises of God and believe for better and greater things. His promises never fail (Joshua 21:45).
The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble,and He knows those who take refuge in Him. Nahum 1:7
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. Psalm 138:7
Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. John 14:1
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow my foot to slip; He who keeps me will not slumber. The Lord is my keeper. The Lord will protect me from all evil; He will keep my soul. The Lord will guard my going out and coming in from this time forth and forever. Based on Psalm 121.
A declaration assuring that one will or will not do something; a vow. Indication of something favorable to come; expectation. Indication of future excellence or success.
God bless you,
