I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2)
My help comes from an all-powerful God who loves me as his child. I find great comfort in these words. When I am lost in my incessant self-reliance, I am fearful; but when I look beyond myself, I recall that my help comes from the Lord maker of heaven and earth. I am so prone to forget this.
The circumstances don’t change. It’s my perspective that changes. I look for the Lord, and he comforts me. He surrounds me with his presence, and I find peace.
Whatever they may be, I pray that you find God’s presence in your circumstances.
Love and blessing,
(Thanks to Joyce Caperton for directing me to this Psalm)
