Psalm 121 The Message (MSG)

A Pilgrim Song

121 1-2 I look up to the mountains;
    does my strength come from mountains?
No, my strength comes from God,
    who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
3-4 He won’t let you stumble,
    your Guardian God won’t fall asleep.
Not on your life! Israel’s
    Guardian will never doze or sleep.
5-6 God’s your Guardian,
    right at your side to protect you—
Shielding you from sunstroke,
    sheltering you from moonstroke.
7-8 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.


p.s. :

God Ebenezer. I call Him. Pembacaan bible reading one year-ku hari ini sampai di Kitab 1 Samuel, dalam kisah ketika Samuel dan bangsa pilihan itu mengalami bahwa, God is The Rock of Help. That’s it. God Ebenezer. Ketika kekuatan habis dan harapan tinggal sisa-sisa, padahal perjuangan masih panjang. Ketika kita tidak bisa mengandalkan sosok manusia. Ketika posisi kita berada di ujung tanduk, dan tidak ada pilihan mundur atau menyerah. Saat itu, mereka menemukan God Ebenezer. Ya. Dia adalah Tuhan yang sama, Yesus yang sama, yang menebus dosa, who traded heaven to have us again, yang juga adalah The Rock of Help. Sumber pertolongan pada waktu kesesakan, sangat terbukti. Dan tidak kebetulan, pembacaan Kitab 1 Samuel ini terhubung pula dengan sebait Mazmur yang indah ini, yang ter-rhema berulang-ulang belakangan ini, bagiku pribadi. Sebait Mazmur berisikan kesaksian iman Raja Daud, of God Ebenezer.


I look up to the mountains;
does my strength come from mountains?

No, my strength comes from God,
who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.

Yes. Our strength comes from God Ebenezer.
Our Rock of Help.

Run to Him, and be saved.

Note :  
please check 1 Samuel 7 MSG for those words,
Ebenezer: The Rock of Help.
