Songs for the Journey (2): Sermons on the Psalms of Ascents
Reading: Psalm 121
Psalm 121 is all about knowing God’s protection as his pilgrim people. Six times the author uses the Hebrew word ‘shámar’ to speak of God’s protection. The Psalm opens with a declaration of where the Psalmists help comes from (1-2). It comes from the maker of heaven & earth, pointing us to the truth of God’s infinite power! In context the specific help needed is protection. The God who created the hills is well able to protect pilgrims from any dangers lurking in the hills! The Psalm declares that as your all-powerful protector God will watch over all your steps (3-4), is right beside you in the challenges of the day & night (5-6) & will ultimately preserve you from all evil, in all of life, forevermore (7-8)!
