We must all encourage our confidence in God with the fact that He made heaven and earth, and He who did that can do anything. He made the world out of nothing, and by a mere spoken word the world was created.
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2)
The Psalmist, through these picturesque words penned at a time when he was awesomely aware of God’s presence, was most likely referencing the “hill” on which the temple was built, Mount Moriah. When he was at a distance, he would look toward the sanctuary knowing that from there his help was come, from the secret place within the tabernacle. He knew his help and strength came from the Lord … he had no doubt.
Regardless of your situation today, a mere “spoken word” into your circumstance can and will make a way where there seems to be a way. Not only is He our Waymaker, He’s the source of our strength, He’s the strength of our life, He’s holy, wonderful, marvelous, glorious, magnificent and righteous, and mighty.
Lift up your eyes and look toward the Source of your help … your help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth!
Lord, my circumstances at times seem to overwhelm me and I fall short; I worry, fret, and allow fear to take hold in my heart. Father, help me remember that You ARE the strength of my life, You ARE the source of my strength! Help me hold onto your unchanging hand as we walk through these next days together. Lord, I lift my heart to You in total praise! There is nothing too difficult for You, and that’s why I can say without reservation, “My help comes from the Lord!”
“Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.” (Deuteronomy 33:29)
