1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Thoughts: The God who made the mountains is our help. The mountains inspire me to remember the power and the majesty of God. I’ve always felt that the writer of this Psalm was writing as they were climbing a mountaintop- talking about not slipping, and watching over us for miles and miles. The Lord watches over you too. I used to wonder how God can keep tract of so much information until I climb a mountain and see things for many miles, or hear of a computer that can keep track of billions of people’s information. God is higher than the mountains with a vision keener than an eagle’s. He makes our silly but powerful computers seem like nothing. He sees you and cares for you.
Prayer: Watch over me, Lord, for I deeply need you.
