May 1, 2017: Day 121 – Psalm 121May 1, 2017
Favorite psalm alert!! Who can read this psalm without feeling a sense of peace and security only on par with psalm 23? It is once again a song of ascents which means that this would have been sung by pilgrims as they made their way from the Mount of Olives up to the hill where the temple stood, or where Jerusalem was located. It is a psalm which also has ties to Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness in each of the Gospels.
It is nice to know that God is never napping on us. I like to know that when I find myself in some tight situations. Praise God that He is ready to take on whatever comes our way.
I can see why this is a favorite psalm. I do feel GOD’s peace when I read this. No matter how my day goes, what mishaps occur or whatever satan throws my way, it is a good feeling to know that God has my back and will be there for me no matter what.
