From where does my help come?

This is from Kathryn - Today has been a very rough day for my parents, Qavah, Aimee, and Maddie. Everyone except my father is battling some kind of health issue. Aimee went to the hospital with significant back pain, Qavah is not feeling well, and my parents are exhausted. Please pray for supernatural strength for them all to get through this week with good news! Thank you for your prayers!

For all these things to be happening at once is so bizarre that we can't help but believe the enemy of our souls is trying to keep good things from happening. It's in moments like these that it is can be so hard to hold on. The Psalmist had to remind himself of what was true in moments like these. Psalm 121 says:

1I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.

3He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
