I look up to the mountains — does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!
He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.
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.
The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.
Help comes to saints only from above…Satan will endeavour to keep our eyes upon our sorrows that we may be disquieted and discouraged…(but) Jehovah who created all things is equal to every emergency…He will sooner destroy heaven and earth than permit his people to be destroyed, and the perpetual hills themselves shall bow rather than he shall fail whose ways are everlasting. We are bound to look beyond heaven and earth to him who made them both…Jehovah will keep the door when it opens and closes, and this he will perseveringly continue to do so long as there is left a single man that trusts in him, as long as a danger survives, and, in fact, as long as time endures. (Charles Spurgeon, The Treasury of David, Exposition of Psalm 121)
