“The Eternal keeps you safe, so close to Him that His shadow is a cooling shade to you. Neither bright light of sun nor dim light of moon will harm you. The Eternal will keep you safe from all of life’s evils, from your first breath to the last breath you breathe, from this day and forever.” Psalm 121:5-8 VOICE⠀

“God’s your Guardian, right at your side to protect you—shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke. God guards you from every evil, He guards your very life. He guards you when you leave and when you return, He guards you now, He guards you always.” Psalm 121:5-8 MSG⠀

Your Word, no matter what translation, reassures my fearful mind of these three things:⠀

1. You protect me. 

From the enemy, all the days of my life.⠀

2. You shield me. 

From the seen and unseen, whether I know it or not. You take the blows meant for me as You battle for my freedom.⠀

3. You shelter me. 

From the moment I wake til the moment I sleep, from my first breath to my last. I am welcome and safe not only in Your embrace, but in Your heart and in Your home. Your shelter is my hiding place, my fortress of solitude, my temporary and forever rest.⠀

Take that, fear, you are no longer welcome here, not even for one millisecond longer. Buzz off, for my Hope has drawn near! ⠀
