Psalms 121:5(KJV)

"The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; Psalm 121:5 Do you know the Lord is watching over you? Life is a journey with God. And throughout the Bible, God has promised to watch over us. A shepherd watching over his sheep or a parent watching over a small child gives them great comfort. Do you need God’s comfort today? References to the "right hand" in Scripture typically imply strength and authority. The Lord's right hand speaks of His protection and power. God is your shade at your right hand – this refers to someone who stands with you to offer protection in the face of opposition. God is our cover. We are not unprotected. This psalm and throughout the bible we do not have promises that there will be no trouble or that Christians are exempt from difficulties. So is the Psalmist wrong? Or is God unreliable? Neither. Rather this psalm rejoices in the fact that God will be our Guard and He will see us through without falling asleep on the job. God protects us in the way that really matters. When trouble comes and it will, we must not think that God has forgotten or forsaken us. We must always remember that God never takes His eyes off us – we must have this security within us. The truth is whether we are aware of it or not, we journey in life with God watching over us Anxiety comes from a feeling of being out of control. The truth is that we are not in control of many things that affect us. If we are not careful, we can begin to take on a victim mentality and sink into depression or fear. The remedy for spiritual anxiety is to trust in the presence and watchful care of the Lord and that He is mindful of our circumstances. Second, we have to let go of our desire to control everything and trust in God’s oversight. When we face a situation outside of our control, we can turn our worry and anxiety over to God and let go and reflect how the Lord watches over us, it gives us the hope we need to walk through whatever difficulties we may face in life. Praise the Lord!
