This is my final installment of Psalm 121. I will be memorizing verses 7 and 8 for the first two weeks of April.
7 The LORD will protect you from all harm;
He will protect your life.
8 The LORD will protect your coming and going
both now and forever.
In verse 5, the psalmist reminded us that "The LORD protects you." Verse 7 reinforces this encouragement: not only does the LORD protect us now, but the verb tense shift from "protects" to "will protect" assures us that His protection extends to our future as well. Verse 8 lends an exclamation point: the Lord will protect us FOREVER. That is a truth to plant deep within our hearts!!
