I lift up my eyes to the hills— from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.
Faith, hope, and trust in the Lord do not guarantee us days free of worry and trouble. What we have in Jesus is God’s promise to be with us through the storms of life. Come what may, we never walk alone.
Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, I praise you for your grace and mercy. Although I fall short of your glory and stumble in my walk with you, you remain faithful to me. You lift me up when I fall. You are with me in times of joy and times of sorrow. Help me, I pray, to share the hope I have in you with those around me who are in need of the comfort and assurance of your Word. In the Name of your Precious and Perfect Son, I pray. Amen.
