Psalm 121:1-4 NIV 2011

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 author of this Psalm began with a confession of faith and trust in God. More than likely Mount Zion was visible which is a picture God’s majesty. Psalm 115:15, “May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” The Psalter offered a blessing recognizing God as creator, the One True God. Even when walking along precarious paths, the Lord is always there. Almighty God continually watches over His people. The Lord is worthy of unfailing trust. Israel may rest in the loving arms of their Great God. God’s grace is immeasurable.

The Psalter “is often called the prayer book of the second temple and was used in synagogues.” It is the place I return to on a daily basis to find refreshment, resolve and restoration. Sixteen of twenty-three attributes of God are found within the 150 Psalms and thus the reason I choose to seek comfort in this book. The longest chapter in God’s Word is found in the Psalter, Psalm 119. My Bible opens in the middle to Psalms. I continue to seek God’s amazing, immeasurable grace chronicled there.

Where did we see God’s immeasurable grace today?

Saved by grace,

S
