a. Psalm 121:8 (NKJV) 'The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.'
b. Isn't it wonderful to know that our future is secure? This is one of the most amazing promises of God! It reassures us. God cares for you right now. In 20 years He will still be caring for you. If you graduate to heaven, He will still be caring for you there.
c. Psalm 125:2 (NIV) 'As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people both now and forevermore.'
d. DECLARE THIS: I am, secure! Both now, and forevermore. I am safe, in His arms!
Our response: LORD I PLACE MY TRUST IN YOU
a. When you think about it, this is a psalm of TRUST. It calls for a response from us! We cannot just read this psalm and walk away the same. It calls us to place our complete trust in the Lord.
b. This psalm encourages us to trust the Lord in every conceivable situation and stage of life. If you're a child... trust the Lord to overcome fear of the dark / rise above bullying at school. If you're a teenager... trust the Lord to to keep you pure / to give direction for subject choices / to find good friends. If you're old and grey... trust the Lord to to give you clarity of mind / to provide for you.
c. God is completely worthy of our trust! He is trustworthy.
d. Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NLT) 'Blessed are those who TRUST in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.'
e. Psalm 121 has given hope to countless people for over 2,500 years! And today it is encouraging YOU in your journey! It is breathing faith into your soul.
My last statement: How do we respond? By saying: 'God, I place my trust in You!'
