Psalm 121 is a Psalm of trust in God. Some people usually sleep with this Psalm opened under their pillow. Their belief is that once they open the Psalm no evil whatsoever can come to them at night. Yes, the unknown Psalmist, too, also believed that God is always able to save those who put their trust in Him.
Psalm 121 comes to mind at times of personal or national distress. The Psalmist expresses assurance and hope in God’s protection at all times. The Almighty God, who made heaven and earth, cares for you so much that of the seven billion odd people on earth, He sees your going out and coming in, and He watches over you so that no harm comes to you.
The Covid-19 pandemic that started in early 2020 revealed the limitations of governments, corporations and science in protecting the lives of people. The scourge was not a respecter of person or place. Big and small people died. The pandemic did not differentiate between man and woman, the wealthy and the poor, the old and the young, advanced nations and the poor nations! It dealt with all along its way! It went into royal palaces and fortresses of governments. It dawned on people all over the world that what was needed was divine help.
The power of God to save is without limit. He parted the Red Sea to make a way of escape for the Israelites. He brought water out of the rock so that they will not die of thirst in the wilderness. He healed King Hezekiah of the sickness that was set to take his life and gave him fifteen more years to live.
This is the God the Psalmist wrote about in Psalm 121. The same God watches over you and your household. If you trust Him and put your hand in His hand, He will keep you safe at all times. Put all your care on Him because He cares.
PRAYER: Lord, I put my hand in your hand, kindly lead and protect me at all times, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
