BIBLE TEXT: Psalm 121: 1-3: “I lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber.”
PERSONAL REFLECTION: I recently got a new job. That’s scary in and of itself, but I thought the most difficult part would be if I would be cut out to do the job I have been asked to do. I was wrong. It turns out the most difficult part about the new job is learning the new people — the new unbelievers that I am supposed to lead. I have never been afraid of this aspect of life, but I have been cautious of how I approach people. But then I remember this verse.
Where does my help come from? More than that, where does my strength come from? My courage? My peace? The Lord.
PERSONAL APPLICATION: The other day there was a horrible vibe throughout the entire company. Everybody was in a bad mood and on edge. I’m not sure why. I got an uneasy feeling, but then I remembered this verse. I recited it back to the Lord, because this is one of His promises to us. He will help give me peace in this situation. I asked God for help because I knew He’d be there. Don’t be afraid to ask God for help because that is what He promises. He will not leave us alone.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray you give strength and peace to those who are weary and burdened. Help us accept your help because you are greater and good. Remove our worry so we can be reminded of who you are. We love you and thank you for never forsaking us. Jesus’ name. Amen.
