Verse of the Day

Psalm 121:7-8
The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Nothing is outside the purview of God’s watch and keep. The duration of this promise makes this apparent: The Lord watches over his people now and forevermore. When the psalmist wrote that they would be kept from all harm, he did not contradict those passages that refer to the persecution that follows those who follow the Lord (Jn 15:20). Instead, the Lord protects his people in the midst of difficulty. Jesus prayed along these lines in his high priestly prayer: “Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name” (Jn 17:11). Followers of Christ will not be kept from difficulty, but they will be kept.
