Wednesday Worship - Psalm 121



 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
         From whence comes my help?
 My help comes from the LORD,
         Who made heaven and earth.
      
 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
         He who keeps you will not slumber.
 Behold, He who keeps Israel
         Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
      
 The LORD is your keeper;
         The LORD is your shade at your right hand.
 The sun shall not strike you by day,
         Nor the moon by night.
      
 The LORD shall preserve you from all evil;
         He shall preserve your soul.
 The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
         From this time forth, and even forevermore.
                                  
                                                Psalm 121 nkj




Helpful Hint for Bible Study:
When studying the Bible it is helpful to read a verse aloud several times, putting the emphasis on a different word in the verse each time.  It can sometimes change what you believed to be the meaning of the verse and help you understand the verse better. Sometimes it simply makes you realize how beautiful some of the verses of the Bible really are. This is particularly true of the Psalms.

Try reading some of the verses of  Psalm 121 several times, placing the emphasis on a different word or several words each time... I think you will see what I mean. Learned this helpful studying tool from Rick Warren's book, "Bible Study Methods : 12 Ways You Can Unlock God's Word"

Hope you have a great day!
