I thought it might be helpful to take a brief respite and review how Psalms 120-124 sound a harmonious song to our Helper.
Though distressed by circumstances absent of peace (shalom), we call to the Lord who answers our cries.
To whom do our cries rise? To the Helper of Psalm 121 …
Because our help comes from the Maker of the heavens and earth, who is our keeper (guard) we can be confident that He will keep (6x) us forevermore.
The proper response of we who seek help from our Keeper is to give thanks to the name of the Lord, longing for worship and satisfaction in a peaceful, New Jerusalem, the place where our God dwells.
But while waiting, we continue to lift up our eyes to the Lord our God, the One in the heavens, and ask for His grace when confronted with the contempt of the proud.
Our Helper is none other than the Maker of heaven and earth. Blessed be the Lord who is for us and gives us victory.
