“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.”
I believe the Lord is trying to tell us here that He wants us to have a close relationship with Him and Him with us. He wants us to persevere in our relationship with Him. This means “to continue firmly on a particular course despite the obstacles or difficulties’. Many people start strong for the Lord then they drop out—quit believing, quit trusting, quit reading the Bible, quit praying, quit church attendance. He is our helper, our protector till we enter the portals of heaven. When the Lord promises to watch over us it is not a guarantee that we will escape from trouble but we do have the promise of His goodness in time of trouble. Is the Lord your keeper?
It is a great salvation, for it saves from great sin
