I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book ofPsalms 121:8, “The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth and even for evermore.”
From the above context we learn that the Lord shall preserve our going out and our coming in. These days, when life has become so uncertain, we see that often one goes out and does not return back due to various reasons. We must not rely upon men and other means, to survive in the land of living. As children of God our hope must be on God. For David says, “Our help comes from God who made the Heaven and Earth.” The Bible says, it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
This psalm teaches us to comfort ourselves in the Lord, when difficulties and dangers are greatest. It is Almighty wisdom that contrives, and Almighty powerthat works the safety of those that put them under God’s protection. He is a watchful Keeper; He is never weary; He neither sleeps nor slumbers. We need to sit under His shade and delight in His assurance. He is always near to His people for their protection and refreshment. You shall not be hurt, by the open assaults, nor by the secret attempts of your enemies. The Lord shall prevent the evil which you fear and lighten your heart. He will preserve your soul, from being defiled by sin and disturbed by affliction; He will preserve it from perishing eternally. He will keep you both in life and death.
You will know that your tent is secure; you will take stock of your property and find nothing missing. This is the gracious assurance which is made to all who put their trust in God. At home and abroad; in the house, in the field, and by the way; on the land and on the ocean; in their native country and in areas remote; on earth, they are always safe. No evil shall befall you. The Bible says, My People will dwell in a peaceful habitation in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
God expects you to rely on Him completely, because He is “Ebenezer”. Ebenezer means “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”Hasn’t God helped you thus far? When all around you have been falling sick and dying, the Lord has preserved your life from Corona, He has extended your life. Isn’t this amazing? You need to trust in the faithfulness of God. You must depend upon Him for your very existence. Humble dependence upon God gives way to prosperity in your labour, in your industry, and productivity that can change the world.
God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord because You take pleasure in helping your children. You send your angels as spirits to attend on your children. Help us to realize how important it is to depend upon You. May we look up to you who made the heaven and earth for our help. Make all our failures a success.
