This year, I'm sharing my "Treasures" of my study of my "Ponder the Morsels" book. I've picked 31 Psalms to study throughout 2013. Today I studied Psalm 121. Here is what I learned.
The Lord will ·guard [watch] you as you come and go, both now and forever. Psalm 121:8 (EXB)
He guards you when you leave and when you return, he guards you now, he guards you always. Psalm 121:8 (MSG)
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. Psalm 121:8 (AMP)
“Thy going out and thy coming in," marks the completeness of the protection, extending to all that the man is and that he does. J. J. Stewart Perowne
Many insurance companies use phrases such as ”like a good neighbor.. is there” or “you’re in goo hands” to signify that they will be there when you need them. However, if you’ve had to deal with insurance companies, often you are “put on hold” or they don’t seem to there when you do need them.
However, God provides COMPLETE PROTECTION. God is really there 24/7. He never leaves and is EVER-PRESENT.
Think about that concept... COMPLETE PROTECTION. That is a very assuring concept. That doesn’t mean that “bad things won’t happen” rather, that God only allows things to happen to further His gospel and He is right there to provide the support and whatever help we need. Nothing that happens to us surprises God... He knows all.
To create a positive day, I only have to rest in the Complete Protection that God provides and realize that when things seem to be going wrong, remember that God is at work and that God has a perfect plan.
