THE GOD WHO IS MY HELP | PSALM 121
Our text today is about a helper, but most of us don’t need help. Or so we think. But now we come to a time like this.
We now have a Covid pandemic and all the issues that result from it, and we are in panic because we don’t know what to do, how to react, how to respond. And we need help. This is a text about help. And if you think you don’t need it, it has almost nothing to say to you. But since we all know that we do need help, let’s look at this.
- 1. Who is my Helper? (vss. 1, 2; See 1 Kings 18, Luke 10:30).
- 2. How will He Help?
- A. God will not sleep. (vss. 3, 4)
- B. God will keep. (vss. 5, 6)
- C. God will do so forever. (vss. 7, 8; See Genesis 50:20, Psalm 23:4; Romans 8:35, 36, 37)
Notice the progression concerning the body in this Psalm. In verse 1, there are eyes. In the next stanza, the Psalmist mentions feet. In the third, he mentions the right hand. In the final stanza, the Psalmist concludes, He will keep your life.
The Psalm ends by speaking to what aspects of life the Lord keeps. Verse 8: The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore”.
The Lord is our Helper. He does not sleep. He will keep. And He will do so forever.
