Scripture Notes on Psalm 121

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. (Psalm 121:3-4)

An old children’s song declares, “He’s got the whole world, in His hands; He’s got the whole wide world, in His hands…” but sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

When hard times come, seasons of loss or dark nights of the soul, it can feel as if God isn’t really there at all, or if He is, that He must not be paying attention.

It’s in those times that the very survival of our soul depends on believing the promises of God. We hang on to all He has spoken through His Word, because this is our true and faithful anchor of hope.

The truth is, no matter how much it may seem like it, God will never abandon you! He will never check out on you! If you’re in Christ, you can take courage in any situation because of this powerful truth.

God never stops looking after you.
