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.
The notation states a song of ascents but for me it is a song of trust. Where does my help come from? It takes a lot of trust to turn to someone we cannot see or smell or touch. How can we believe like this if it were not for the Holy Spirit, that little voice we hear with our hearts?
Hearing this little voice saved my life on many occasions. The Psalm tells of how God is ever present in all the trials we face. He has our best interest close to his heart. No other person would ever stay with us like He does every day, walking beside us, ever guiding and ever loving.
