How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

Is God Really Watching Over Us? The Blessings of a Crisis

神真正地看護我們嗎 Is God Really Watching Over Us? The Blessings of a Crisis

Psalm 121

My Sermon Notes from March 29, 2020 Full Text: 詩篇 Psalm 121

1 我要向山舉目。我的幫助從何而來?
2 我的幫助從造天地的耶和華而來。
3 他必不叫你的腳搖動,保護你的必不打盹。
4 保護以色列的也不打盹,也不睡覺。
5 保護你的是耶和華,耶和華在你右邊蔭庇你。
6 白日,太陽必不傷你;夜間,月亮必不害你。
7 耶和華要保護你免受一切的災害,他要保護你的性命。
8 你出你入,耶和華要保護你,從今時直到永遠。

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
