The clock tower at Westminster, that contains the bell known as Big Ben, is an iconic landmark in London. Traditionally it is thought that the melody of the tower chimes was taken from the tune of “I know my Redeemer liveth” from Handel’s Messiah. Words were eventually added and put on display in the clock room. “Lord, through this hour be Thou our guide; so by Thy power no foot shall slide.”
These words come from Psalm 37, reminding us that “though we may stumble, we will not fall, for the Lord upholds us with his hand.”
How extraordinary! The Creator of the universe not only upholds us and helps us out, but He also cares deeply about every moment we live.
As we let the assurance of His care ring in our hearts, we will find courage to face whatever comes our way.
