a. Psalm 121:2 (NKJV) 'My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.'
b. The psalmist refers to our Helper as the One 'Who made heaven and earth'. That is a powerful statement!! It means that if He made heaven and earth (The universe)... He made the whole. If He made the whole... then the parts of the whole are fully under His control. If everything is under His control... then it is easy for Him to help us! God can offer help because He has the authority to control. I can't offer help from our military, because I don't control it. God has the power and ability to help!
c. Our Helper is all-powerful. He is the Maker of heaven and the earth. He is the mighty God! SPEAK IT OUT: 'He's is my mighty Helper!'
d. Psalm 46:1 (NIV) 'God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present HELP in trouble.'
He is no ordinary helper. He is our ever-present Helper! Our covenant-keeping Helper! Our faithful-to-His-promises Helper!
SOME OF THE WAYS IN WHICH HE WILL GUARD AND KEEP YOU
a. Verse 3 (NKJV) 'He will not allow your foot to be moved.' The enemy would love to move your foot from the Rock of Ages, from the firm foundation of Christ. BUT God will keep you from slipping.
Psalm 40:2 (NKJV) 'He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps.'
b. Verse 7 (NKJV) 'The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.' I believe in God's protection! How about you?
c. Verse 8 (NKJV) 'The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in.'
One Theologian wrote the following: (uses Old Testament language) 'In the morning a man would go out of his chamber in which he slept. He would go about his daily tasks. Then in the evening he would return to his chamber. Throughout the entire day he would know God's preserving power.' The significance of 'going out' and 'coming in' is that God's protection will cover ALL your activities.
Deuteronomy 28:6 (NKJV) 'Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out.'
