"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."
The Psalmist, through the picturesque words penned at a time when
he was awesomely aware of God's presence, 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 that from there came his help . . . from the
secret of his tabernacle. He knew his help and strength came from
the Lord . . . he had no doubt.
We must all encourage our confidence in God with the fact that He
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
Regardless of your situation today, a mere "spoken word"
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!
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 . . . 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!"
Have a blessed day!
