My Help Comes From The Lord

23rd February

 “I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, whom made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 121:1-2

Have you ever seen a mountain range so magnificent that it renders you speechless? Have you ever marvelled at whose handiwork it was, that made such grandeur? Well, the same God who created those mountains is the same God who created you. Furthermore, that great God lives in YOU.

The Psalmist writes in today’s passage of his wonder at where his help came from. He too realised if God created such wonderful mountains, so tall and mighty, then that same God would be able to help him through his travels, struggles and heartaches. There is such assurance in his words in verse 2 of this passage. “My help comes from the LORD!” He knew that if God could create such high mountain peaks, if God could create the heavens and the earth, then what are his problems in comparison?

Stop trying to fix your problems and struggles by your self. We serve an almighty God who created the entire world and all that is in it by the very breath and word of His mouth. There is no need to worry or fret. God is at hand. His mighty Hands that flung stars into space, that carved Adam from the dust of the ground, are the same hands that carry you from your trials. Trust in the creator of Heaven and Earth. That is where your help comes from!!
