The Keeper Of Life

child-945422__480When I read the Bible and questions come up for me, I sometimes take them to God, or I seek a friend’s counsel.  But what I’ve realized is that there are some questions that may not be answered in this lifetime; perhaps they will never be answered.  And maybe that’s okay.  Because maybe once I move beyond this life, knowing the answers to those questions will no longer be important to me.  But in reading the Bible verse below I am reminded of a question that has come up for me often.  I have wondered how we can apply verses like this to our lives…because we all experience difficulties.  I’m sure there are a variety of different opinions on the matter, but something someone said to me once rings true.  He said that ultimately, if we have given our lives to God, then in the end, we will be with Him, and nothing can prevent that.  So, in the end, He will have kept us from evil, He will have kept our going out and our coming in, and He will have kept our life, just as the verse says.

“The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.  The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.” – Psalm 121:7-8
