Psalm 121 speaks, or I should say sings 🙂 , to the heart of faith.  Whenever, wherever, the Christ Follower is facing a challenge they just need to lift their eyes to Heaven to find the faith they will need to persevere. 

Your Lord never sleeps, never losses sight of you.  In the world we live in people will sometimes fail you, we will at times fail ourselves.  The one constant you have is the protection of your Lord.  “He will watch over your comings and goings, both now and forevermore”.

Psalm 121 (New Internation Version)

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
       where does my help come from?

 2 My help comes from the LORD,
       the Maker of heaven and earth.

 3 He will not let your foot slip—
       he who watches over you will not slumber;

 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
       will neither slumber nor sleep.

 5 The LORD watches over you—
       the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

 6 the sun will not harm you by day,
       nor the moon by night.

 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
       he will watch over your life;

 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
       both now and forevermore.

I like to keep things simple, given my limited ability of of brain power I must.  🙂

Faith is as easily understood as the words to Psalm 121.  I think it sums up having faith in God perfectly.

Singing praise to your Lord can’t be a half-hearted endeavor.  The Psalms require a passionate voice, sung with all your heart.

If you can take that message completely into your heart, you will never need further reassurance of the power of faith.
