Keeping Your Soul
The LORD … will keep your soul. Psalm 121:7
“Keeping or “preserving” is to exercise great care over an object of value. The soul is the seat of human personality, the organ of thinking, emotions and choosing. A Brinks truck bearing a load of cash stops at a bank to deposit its day’s collection. Immediately guards spring out and surround the vehicle. With gun drawn, a security officer carries the wealth into the bank. Leering eyes look on, wanting to grab the money. In the fallen world, the thief desires to snatch our souls, but God surrounds our minds, feelings and volition with His great care.
