Psalm 121

Matt Hemsley looks at the difficulty and calling of Psalm 121–the Psalmist looks to the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth–the one who in the Psalm promises to provide for us and keep us from all harm. And yet harm comes to us, how can this be? The Psalms hold in tension the goodness of God and the suffering of this life, the Presence of God and the evil we experience–and invites us to sing and pray these same Psalms so we are shaped, transformed into people who can live with a firm faith in the midst of struggle and challenge too.
