THE LORD WATCHES OVER YOU

THE LORD WATCHES OVER YOU AND HE IS YOUR CARETAKER: Psalm 121
If you are willing to surrender to the Lord, he will abide in you and you in him. With him living in you, your life become one of peace, harmony, joy and complete trust. When faced with many trials and tribulations lift up your eyes to the mountains where the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth patiently awaits your request, your response. Jesus rescued us from this evil world by offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins; therefore we are blessed through grace and peace that enhance who we truly are.
In Psalm 121 the Bible teaches us that THE LORD WATCHES OVER YOU, AND HE IS THE CARETAKER. It further says this, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. (Psalms 121 NIV)
The Lord Watches over You because he already had everything planned from the very beginning. A reminder in the book of Jeremiah: I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall you call me, I will listen to you. If you seek me and find me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
Building intimacy with the Lord, require effort and determination to walk and live in his presence as
we live out our purpose here on earth. That process include taking time to study God‘s word, to develop a prayer life, communicating with the Holy Spirit making our request personal, and releasing those things that hinder our walk by trusting that God will do what he said he would do. Your life should be one of obedience and total surrender in order to build a solid foundation and remain connected to the Source that gives all; always remember that The Lord Watches Over You.
Do you ever find yourself wondering why it seems so difficult to make the right connection? Consider these words from the book Of Isaiah, “Behold the Lord’s hand is not shortened (amputated) he can still save; neither is his ears stopped up–he can still hear: there’s nothing wrong with God, the wrong is you, your sins got between you and God and caused a split so he doesn’t hear (Isaiah 59:1-2).
Jesus has cleared a way to mend the separation and beckons you to come and taste of the Living Water, surrender to the Caretaker of your soul. When you are willing and with an obedient attitude of thankfulness your blessings flow directly from the Lord, he knows what you need because as stated, The Lord Watches over You. Live life in expectancy by preparing your mind, heart and spirit for all God has promised to those who diligently seek him.
