God Helped Me
"A song of the stairway. I was desperate for you to help me in my struggles, and you did! So come and deliver me now from this treachery and false accusation. O lying deceivers, don’t you know what is your fate? You will be pierced through with condemnation and consumed with burning coals of fire! Why am I doomed to live as an alien, scattered among these cruel savages? Am I destined to dwell in the darkened tents of desert nomads? For too long I’ve had to live among those who hate peace.I speak words of peace while they speak words of war but they refuse to listen. God Protects Us" - Psalm 120 - The Passion Translation (TPT)
"A song of the stairwayI look up to the mountains and hills, longing for God’s help. But then I realize that our true help and protection come only from the Lord, our Creator who made the heavens and the earth. He will guard and guide me, never letting me stumble or fall. God is my keeper; he will never forget nor ignore me. He will never slumber nor sleep; he is the Guardian-God for his people, Israel. Jehovah himself will watch over you; he’s always at your side to shelter yousafely in his presence. He’s protecting you from all danger both day and night. He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. You will be guarded by God himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore!" - Psalm 121 - The Passion Translation (TPT)
