Psalm 121 gives us a beautiful picture of how God wants to support us in our journey and encourages us to trust his guidance and plans. Each person will respond differently to the Psalm, but unlike the Armour of God that we used for last week’s Friday dance, this Psalm creates a much softer response for us to think about our journey.
During the Moving with a Strong Movement Foundation day we looked at two contrasting pieces of scripture to demonstrate the strength and softness of God and how moving to different pieces of scripture, can be interpreted and demonstrated in different ways.
I found it fascinating to watch how the duos (and one trio) set about to demonstrate what the Psalm meant. Most wanted to portray one person as God and the other, who was seeking to trust God with his guidance. For me it really did demonstrate how differently God speaks to each of us and sometimes just declaring something simple brings an incredible response.
I wonder where you feel you are with your journey at the moment, are you letting the softness of God into what may be quite a chaotic, upturned life? God says ‘He will not let your foot slip.’ So remember in a crazy life with lots going on, where things seem to run at a high speed, God wants you to remember he is there, he won’t let you fall, look up, follow him and allow his softness and who he is to shape your life.
Read Psalm 121, watch the video, let God speak and relax.
