A New Song in My Heart – Psalm 121

Psalm 121
Wednesday, November 5, 2014
Pastor Dave Clear

* Fifteen Psalms are labeled either as a song of degrees or a song of ascent.

* This Psalm could be titled “The Lord is thy keeper.”

* A keeper is a protective guard.


1.  The statement of our help (v. 1)

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.”

2.  The source of our help.  (v. 2)

“My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”

3.  The scope of our help.  (vv. 3-6)

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

a.  He’ll help with slips (v. 3)
b.  He helps with sleepers (vv. 3-4)
c.  He helps with struggles (vv. 5-6)

4.  The strength of our help (vv. 7-8)

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
