The Psalmist, through the picturesque words penned at a time when he was awesomely aware of God’s presence as recorded in Psalm 121:1-2, was probably speaking about the “hill” on which the temple was built, Mount Moriah. When he was at a distance, he would look toward the sanctuary, knowing his help came from there; he knew his help and strength came from the Lord.
“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)
This next year promises to bring many challenges to us personally and as the Body of Christ. The Lord warns us in the last days that evil will increase and the days will become more perilous. We must all place our confidence in God with the fact that He who made heaven and earth and everything in them is able to take care of us—OUR help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
Regardless of your situation today, your help comes from the Lord, the Creator, our Sustainer, and our Help. He 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…He’s our Help!
Approach this new year with a new look! Look to the “hills from when cometh [our] help.” Circumstances will lie but the Lord’s promises are forever true; He is our help.
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 unfailing hand as we—You and I 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!” Amen and Amen!
