Need help?

When I need help; when I need hope; when I need direction; when I need love; when I need comfort; when I need healing; when I need strength; when I need protection; when I need clarity; when I need peace; when I need joy, I can go to God and be completely satisfied. I cannot look to anyone else or anything else. I cannot depend on this world for these things. As amazing as my wife is, I can’t even expect her to meet my needs; however, I can always count on God. He is able. He is always there. He will meet my needs. My help comes from the Lord!

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. (PSALM 121)
