“The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand.” (Psalm 121:5)
Dear friend, today’s promise from God is from Psalm 121:5, “The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand.” Yes, the Lord watches over you. In Psalm 40:17 the scripture says, “But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.” There are nearly seven billion people on the earth, but the scripture says, “The Lord knows His people. He watches over every one of them.”
Jesus is the true shepherd. When one sheep goes away out of the hundred, the Shepherd goes behind that one sheep, leaving the ninety nine and brings it back. So rejoice today that God is thinking about you. One day when Sadhu Sundar Singh, a great servant of God, was travelling all alone in the mountains of Himalayas to the Tibet. He was so lonely. He said, “If I die in these mountains, nobody will search for me. I have no one,” and his heart was so troubled. Immediately somebody appeared and said, “Sundar, I am thinking about you. I am Jesus. I love you.”
He made Sundar sit down and talked to him about the glory of Heaven and Sundar was so encouraged and comforted and he continued his mission. The Lord is thinking about you too. He watches over you. The Lord is your shade at your right hand and as David says in Psalm 16:8, “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” The Lord is your hiding place. He will protect you. You are never alone. He is with you whether you are in the deep valleys or high mountains (Psalm 139: 8-10). He holds you with His hand and He will guard your every step. Be of good cheer!
Thank You for watching over me. Thank You for protecting me. Keep me safe in You Lord. Appear to me too and encourage me with Your word. You are all I need in life. Help me to fulfill Your purpose in my life.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
