“…where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1

Isaiah 28:2 “Behold, the Lord has one who is mighty and strong; like a storm of hail, a destroying tempest, like a storm of mighty, overflowing waters, he casts down to the earth with his hand.” Exodus 15:2 “The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”

“The Lord hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up. And there *arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.”
Jonah 1:4

9 thoughts on ““…where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1

  1. Thank you, Sara, that you heard and that you shared what the Holy Spirit is saying. And according to this song, what the Spirit is saying to the world, the church and this place…as the waters cover the sea.

    As I looked at that photo showing the force of the sea waves against that pier and read the accompanying scriptures and your prophetic “hearing”, I thought about God’s Glory. That beautiful tranquil sea becomes a source to be reckoned with when in His Hands.

    I was reminded of this scripture: “There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.” I Cor. 15:41 ESV
    And then what God Himself said about His glory from Isaiah 48:2 Good News: “I alone am the LORD your God. No other god may share my glory; I will not let idols share my praise.”

    Reading further in the scripture you gave from Isaiah above, I saw in vs 5: “In that day the LORD Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people. He will be a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment,”

    And reading on in the Exodus 15 scripture you shared, I saw that God’s waters from His mighty sea accomplished His purposes.

    Then as you pointed out from Jonah 1, he was no match for, but at the mercy of God’s powerful stormy seas.

    “Glory as the water covers the seas” ….lots to think on from these words.

  2. Thanks for sharing the encouraging hymn phrase, Sara!

    Thinking more on “glory”, I thought to go back and read all the scriptures and readings you shared on God’s glory from a prior blog, “Tell your story-we have a story”.

    Great to review the differences in the glory of the OT vs NT and to be reminded, as you shared, that ““But, as we move from glory to glory, there’s something even more important about the glory of the New Covenant that Christians must understand: its supernatural power to transform us. And that brings us to God’s ultimate purpose and destination for every believer, to transform us into the image of his own beloved Son (2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:28–30; Philippians 3:20–21)”

  3. The footnotes for Psalm 121: 1 says: (NLT) “This song expresses assurance and hope in God’s protection day and night. He not only made the hills but Heaven and earth as well. We should never trust a lesser power than God himself. But not only is he all-power, he also watches over us. Nothing diverts or deters him. We are safe. We never outgrow our need for God’s untiring watch over our life over our life.”

  4. God I thank you for Jesus our Savior we who stands with us all the time and we can count on Him at all time. I use to say to my Father, God is waiting on you to pray ( pray without ceasing 1 Thessalnians 15:15-17
    15:15-17
    16 (A)Rejoice always, 17 (B)pray without ceasing,18 (C)give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
    What a friend we have in Jesus

    Looking at the picture picture above I thought Of Hurricane Delta bearing down on SW Louisiana once again. I thought of two songs

    Tammy said above ,

    The footnotes for Psalm 121: 1 says: (NLT) “This song expresses assurance and hope in God’s protection day and night.

    Which brings me to the another sing Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
    Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine
    Heir of salvation, purchase of God
    Born of His spirit, washed in His blood
    Perfect submission, all is at rest.
    I in my Savior, am happy and blessed
    Watching and waiting, looking above
    Filled with His goodness, lost in His love, oh oh
    This is my story, this is my song
    Praising my Savior all the day long
    This is my story, this is my song
    Praising my Savior all the day long, oh oh oh oh
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
    Oh, what a…

    All above would

    I also thought of Psalm 18:2

    The Lord is my rock, and fortress, and deliver, in whom I will trust, my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower
    Prayer for all in the path Hurricane Delta
    Sw La a promise from
    Isaiah 41:19 says Fear not, for I will help you ; be not dismayed, for I am God; I will strengthen you I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand

    1. Yes, Rena even as I write the storm, Delta, is moving viciously across our earth and within the hour may make landing. Prayers are being said, Hope is engulfed in the hearts of men and women alike yet God is in control.

      Our nation seems to be dark in the midst of a ugly, dangerous political tragedy as Americans planning to kidnap and murder a woman, a governor of a state. Plus other. Our President very sick. Many others sick and dying from a virus that may have have had less deaths if, if, if.

      “…where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1 Vs “My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalms‬ ‭121:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

  5. Looking at the picture that began this blog by Sara on Oct 2….a raging sea pounding a pier with great force, high waves and surge…and then days later comes Delta, and the other that Sara writes, “ Our nation seems to be dark in the midst of a ugly, dangerous political tragedy as Americans planning to kidnap and murder a woman, a governor of a state. Plus other. Our President very sick. “…prophetically seems to reconfirm Sara’s words, “yet God is in control.”
    He knew, He sees and foresees. Sara faithfully shares…

    Rena’s added scriptures and songs and reference to Tammy’s footnotes, gives more reminders of these prophetic words from scripture shared days ago preceding these serious events, “…where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1 Vs “My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalms‬ ‭121:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬”.
