"I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth " Exodus: 34:10 (KJV)
The Lord will send thee help from heaven

"My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalms 121:2

This month we shall learn to trust the Lord explicitly rather than our resources. The Psalmist explains this vividly through the above-mentioned verse. We worship a God who made the heaven and earth. Nothing is impossible for him. Understanding these words will help us to trust the Lord better even when your faith is ebbing away.

Planning our lives ahead alone will not solve our problems. The plans should be within God’s earmarked boundary. As the lives of all human beings are in the hands of God, one never knows if he would even wake up to see the dawn. When such is the case, why not trust the Lord to meet our needs.

The following paragraphs describes the benefits of trusting the Lord:

He will not allow your foot to be moved (Psalms 121:3). When failure looms large at you, he will not let your feet to stumble. How many times you would have cried, "Lord save me, I am slipping." It may be financially, physically or emotionally. The Lord says I am with you. Because you have trusted me and cried unto me I shall deliver you and meet your needs. Behold, he who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep (Psalms 121:4). He guards you day and night. You cannot tell Lord "You do not know how much I suffer." Nothing is hidden from him. Therefore, take courage, he is watching over you when you feel left out. He knows your agony he will save you. All you have to do is cast your burden on the Lord. And he shall sustain you. He shall never permit the righteous to be moved (Psalms 55:22). Our duty is to be righteous before him. Righteousness is not a one-day process but should be practiced continuously day after day. It is like having a friend with whom you loose touch after sometime and ultimately, even the memory of the person also gets erased from our memory. Friendship is sustained through seeing each other and speaking to the friend. On failure of these, friendship dies a natural death. Similarly, to retain the fellowship with God, we should read the Bible regularly and pray to him for everything. Then shall the Lord remember you in your days of trouble. Relationship is a two-way process which has to be nurtured carefully.

The Lord is your keeper. The Lord is your shade at your right hand (Psalms 121:5). In times of danger, the Lord will protect you. Politicians or rich people spend thousands of dollars in protecting themselves by having bodyguards with them. The greatest bodyguard for us is our Jesus Christ. When staying alone, coming back alone to home through a lonely street or any type of danger, the Lord will be with you. Enemy cannot touch you.

The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night (Psalms 121:6). Neither heat nor cold can harm you. The Lord shall protect you from unprecedented danger during the day as well as night.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil. He shall preserve your soul (Psalms 121:7). Not only your body be saved but also your soul will be saved. He will protect you from backsliding, from sinning against him. He will give you a sharp conscience which points out your mistakes.

The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and even forevermore (Psalms 121:8).

Repeat this psalm every day, it will give you confidence and security in the Lord.

May God bless you.
