Background: The book of Psalms was written by at least 7 authors. It expresses a range of human emotions from praise to God in good times, fear of enemies in bad times, guilt, anger and an overriding confidence in God’s goodness, majesty and power.
Psalm 121 reminds us that no matter where we are, God is watching over us every step of the way. What a great comfort!
Ask the children…
Where does our help come from?
“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!.” (Psalm 121:2)
Is God ready at every moment to assist?
“Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps.” (Psalm 121:4)
Will God watch over us no matter where we are?
“The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.” (Psalm 121:7)
Ask your children if they feel the Lord’s presence as they go about their daily lives? Do they realize He is with them always? Make a game today of looking for God every step you take today. See Him in everything you do and then report it tonight at dinner for a praise session and reread Psalm 121.
