Daily Bible Reading “I Will Lift Up My Eyes” (Psalm 121:1-8)

psalm 121 1-2I Will Lift Up My Eyes

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 121:1-8. Psalm 121 is another of the Psalms that is included in the Song of degrees. The Psalmist declares, “I will lift up my eyes to the hill, from where my help comes.” He declares, “My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” The LORD won’t allow your foot to be moved, because he doesn’t slumber or sleep.

The Psalmist assures the people with the words of this Psalm. He reminds them that the LORD God, the creator of the earth, is the keeper of Israel. He loves you and watches over you day and night. He is your protector. He is your provider. He is your helper. You can count on Him. He is always available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. You can always talk to Him. He will hear and answer your prayers.

Call on the LORD today through prayer. He’s waiting to hear from you. Cast all your cares and concerns on Him. He cares for you. He cares about what is going on in your life. He loves you always and forever.

Psalm 121:1-8

1 [[A Song of degrees.]] I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

 

Things to think about:

  • How do you seek help from God?
  • How does it make you feel to know the God of the universe loves you?
  • In what ways do you think of God as your protector?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 121 where the Psalmist reminds us that You never slumber or sleep, but You keep watch over us day and night. He reminds us that You are the LORD of Israel. You are their keeper, and ours too. Help us not to worry about the events of today. Help us to take comfort in knowing that You are in control. Help us to find peace in knowing that in the end You win the battle and the victory is Yours. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.

The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
