“The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in From this time and forever.” Psalm 121:7-8 (ESV)
Perhaps those who guard the correctness of our language might consider that ‘you’re’ is the correct word in verse 8. But it is your very own personal going out and coming in that is guarded by the Lord. It is good to remember how our God is involved in our lives. Our verse reminds us of this truth. We sometimes are tempted to think that we come and go all on our own. We don’t do much checking with others and God whether our going and coming is in line with His will, do we? And we may think that we are on the go so much that no one else could really keep track of all our coming and goings. And then, for God to keep track of all His children in this world, could this really be possible? Yes it is and that is what this verse says. It includes all God’s children in the world and, it includes each of us. Our God is watching over each of our lives and each of our movements and relationships. Whatever we are involved in and whatever our decisions, God knows just were we are. That’s a promise of God.
