God’s Covenant with His Children
Psalm 121 NIV
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills– 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.
The Lord is my:
God is your SHIELD and SHADE

The covenant God has with His children:
- I will LOOK UP to God
- GOD will LOOK OUT for me
