Songs for the Road: The Psalms of Ascent

Day 21: Weekly Truth

Memorizing Scripture is a way to carry God’s Word with you wherever you go, keeping God-breathed instruction, reproof, and truth in your heart and mind each day.

For this study of the Psalms of Ascent, we’ve been memorizing the 121st psalm together, a few verses at a time. The last four verses affirm the Lord’s promise to be our shelter, protecting us from harm.  

The LORD protects you;
the LORD is a shelter right by your side.
The sun will not strike you by day
or the moon by night.

The LORD will protect you from all harm;
he will protect your life.
The LORD will protect your coming and going
both now and forever.
– Psalm 121:5-8
