There is a song for Psalms 121. The first time I heard this song I was singing in the choir of my church home here in Georgia. Miss Carol sang the song so beautifully and I was absorbed by the spirit of the song as I was learning it in rehearsal. At that time in my life I was transitioning from my home state of New Jersey to Georgia. It was a tumultuous time in that I was separated from my wife and children for what I thought would be indefinite.
This was a valley experience and there were steep hills and mountains all around me. I was overwhelmed with the devastation of the situations that led up to our separation. Dealing with failure, powerlessness and unmanageability honestly for the first time in my life, this was the beginning of the tearing down of some major strongholds in my life during the end of 2000. I had to get real with God about the issues that were destroying the goodness that He provided in my life. I would go to church every Sunday and the more I showed up the more I heard The Spoken Word of God. My sin-sick soul needed to get the willingness to let that Word penetrate from my head to my heart. It took the repetition of being around the Word of God during those months in order for it to become alive and at work in me. These were painful times but they were Heavenly times.
The song presented me with the truth of the source of my help. It gave me the confirmation that all along my journey to get to that place of healing, the Lord was my keeper, the Lord was my shade upon my right hand. He was preserving my soul even forever more. MY HELP, MY HELP, MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD.
At that time I needed help to get up and walk by faith and not by sight. Life had beat me down to where I was not walking spiritually. I was crawling because of the affects of manifest sin at work in me. When you do not stay in fellowship with El Elyon – The Most High God — The Possessor of Everything Heavenly and Earthly – by way of His Word, you are destined to live in sin. Over time, if you are His child, that lifestyle makes you have to yield to Him. In those moments of initial ascent towards Him you will be met with God’s Help. He desires to help his children always.
(Click the underline) The issue becomes this – YOU CAN NOT TELL HELP HOW TO HELP!!!!!!!
Being more than a conqueror means having the acceptance that God is God all by Himself. He does not need you to guide Him; YOU NEED HIM TO GUIDE YOU!! He makes it possible for you to realize just how proficient He is at leading when you begin to abide in Him by staying in His Word and allowing His Life to affect EVERY aspect of your life. This is how you live as “MORE THAN A CONQUEROR”.
This song ministers to my spirit the message of God’s Determined Will at taking care of His children. Though it was addressed to the Nation of Israel, the principles of God depicted in this chapter are applicable to us today as Christians since we are ALL God’s children today because of the Blood of Jesus.
