“The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever” (Psalm 121:7-8).

“From this time forth and forever” is a sustaining reassurance of immeasurable comfort. It reframes any present suffering into a much larger context; that what God is accomplishing in his great work of salvation isn’t just about life right now but, all the more, it is the plans and purposes he is executing for all eternity. Of this I am convinced, as painful as your present moment might be, it is far surpassed by God’s forever (2 Corinthians 4:17-18).
