When I think about an Air Force fighter pilot, I can’t imagine their focus is on anything other than complete victory and the taking down of their enemy. They have to rely on their talents and tools to fulfill the mission.
The same is true with you; you have been fully equipped with ALL you could ever need to live each day in full victory no matter how the battle may look. I just read Psalms 121 again, but this time it ignited within me. Let’s look at it together.
Psalm 121:1-8 KJV “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”
The following are thoughts that came to mind as I read this:
V:1 hills, refers to hills of Zion & Jerusalem which was seen as the dwelling place of God.
V:3 Hebrew word for “keeps” (preserves) is used 6 times which emphasizes the care of God.
V:6 sun & moon represents His 24 hours a day protection over us.
V:7 we are preserved – not that things won’t come but that we can go through them in assured victory. 1 Cor 15:57
V:8 the keeping power of God sustains us 1 Thes 5:23
We must be like that fighter pilot and know who we are and use the equipment we have been given. From Genesis to Revelations, we get Kingdom Revelation of who we are and how to use the equipment that we have been given to live in complete and total victory.
So “eyes up” and be extreme about this day and all that you do for Him!
