            Yahweh Is Your Keeper

Psalms 121:5-8 WEB

(5)  Yahweh is your keeper. Yahweh is your shade on your right hand. Yahweh will keep you from all evil. He will keep your soul. Yahweh will keep your going out and your coming in, from this time forward, and forever more.

 Keeper--

One who keeps; one that holds
or has possession of anything.

 When you commit your life to God, he promised to keep your soul and to keep you from all evil. This does not mean that you will not have problems or that you will not face temptation. It means that when you face them and are experiencing them, Yahweh will go through them with you and bring you out on the other side.

 Yahweh did not keep Daniel from being thrown in the lion’s den, but he locked the lions’ jaws so they could not harm him. Neither did he prevent Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from being thrown in the fiery furnace. However, not only did the flames not destroy them, but when they were pulled out the hair on their heads were not burned, neither did they smell like smoke. “But he exclaimed, "Look! I see four men, not tied up, walking around there in the flames, unhurt; and the fourth looks like one of the gods!" “Nebuchadnezzar spoke and said, blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent His Angel and has delivered His servants who trusted in Him” …. Daniel 3:25, 28

 

The key is to trust in him. When you trust in Yahweh and cast all of you burden on him, you will no longer be troubled by worry and strife. He will give you his peace. Peace that no one will understand who does not know and trust in God. His comfort and protection are yours. “Yahweh shall keep you from all evil; He shall keep your soul. Yahweh shall keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.

 

“What we need very badly these days is a company of Christians who are prepared to trust God as completely now as they know they must do at the last day. For each of us the time is coming when we shall have nothing but God. Health and wealth and friends and hiding places will be swept away, and we shall have only God. To the man of pseudo faith that is a terrifying thought, but to real faith it is one of the most comforting thoughts the heart can entertain”. A. W. Tozer (1897–1963)
