Scripture: Psa 121:1-8

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lordthe Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harmhe will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

I Samuel 17

Israel Looked At Goliath

  • They became fearful and ran away from him
  • They saw Goliath as bigger than their God = a hopeless situation

Remember: God is much bigger than your problem

Memorise: Psalm 46:1-2a

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.

Don’t let fear cancel out or overrule your faith in God.

Why? Because God is bigger than your problem and He will help you be victorious.

    23 The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him24 though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)

B. He will neither slumber nor sleep (v.4)
  • He is always awake
  • Trust Him and go to sleep
C. He is your shade at your right hand (v.5)

D. He will watch over you at all times (v.6)
  • the sun will not harm you by day = sunstroke
  • the moon will not harm you by night = moonstruck

    5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psa. 91:5-6)

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psa. 91:1-2)
