Psalm‬ ‭121 A Thousand Elsewhere

Psalm‬ ‭121

Keep/er is mentioned in this short Psalm FIVE times. I’m thinking God wants us to really understand what that means for us as His people.

1. a person who manages or looks after something or someone.

1. have or retain possession of
2. continue or cause to continue in a specified condition, position, course, etc.
3. provide for the sustenance of (someone)
4. honour or fulfill (a commitment or undertaking)
1. food, clothes, and other essentials for living
2. charge; control
3. the strongest or central tower of a castle, acting as a final refuge

We also find this in Numbers‬ ‭6, the benediction that many of us leave church with, on our hearts:

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers‬ ‭6:24-26‬ ‭| ESV

What a comfort to know time and again that God will be with His people and will protect us. --- I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does 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. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on 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 forth and forevermore. Psalm‬ ‭121 ‭| ESV‬‬
