Daily D – Psalm 121:5-6
The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. PSALM 121:5-6 (NLT)
He who “never slumbers or sleeps” (v. 4) watches over you. He protects you. He defends you. He guides you. He provides for you. He restores you. He receives you as an honored guest. He is better to you than you would be to yourself. (See Psalm 23.)
You are never out of his care. You are never out of his reach. You are never beyond hope or help.
There is nothing you or I will ever face alone. God is with us. His plans and purposes are better than we can imagine, superior to anything we could manufacture for ourselves.
This is a good Monday Morning Message. It is also good for the other six days of the week. Just in case you awoke this morning a little under the weather or feeling another ache or pain, it is good to be reminded that God loves us with an everlasting love. We are his children. He takes good care of us.
Having been reminded of this truth, what does this make possible? How does this affect your trajectory today? Where will you put your weight? How will you replace your worry?
We can smile on Monday morning because “The LORD himself watches over” us.
I will step into this new day with confidence.
Our Father, thank you that we are never out of your care. You are with us. You are for us. You seek our highest and best. Thank you for watching over us. Make us fruitful and effective as we join you in your work today. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
