I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.Psalms 121 NKJV
I’m writing a little early this week. By the time you read this, I expect to be in Cuba. Eric Sonera and I will be ministering to a church there on Saturday and Sunday. Our goal is to see if we can be a blessing with what we do: helping train regular people to fulfill their divine purpose. We covet your prayers.
The above Psalm has been my traveling tune for many years. The first time I remember using it was on one of my trips to Haiti. Judy spoke it over me before I left, and I have clung to it ever since. The “going out and coming in” phrase is especially dear to me today. I am so grateful to have a home church family from whom I go out, and to whom I return. I am sent, not just by God, but by a local fellowship to whom I am accountable. That is important to me. The kingdom is never a “me” thing, it is a “we” thing. We are touching lives, connected by Spirit and calling. Have a wonderful Sunday wherever you are. Do your part.
