I look up to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD. He is the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121 NIRV
Our mighty Creator made heaven, earth and every living thing. He is our Helper in time of need; our loving Father who provides for all of our days. He guides us where we faithfully learn to TRUST and shows how to focus on the presence of His everlasting love.
Often, we look to the hills and become weary of the mountains we must climb. We neglect to focus on the One who leads us through valleys of doubt. We have trouble seeing what’s ahead and forget Jesus helps us focus on the Father. He navigates the steps we take and reminds us why we must keep on going... He shows how to experience His presence of His peace and reminds us how to faithfully persevere.
God’s power is far greater than anything we can imagine! We can call on Him when we’re going through difficult days of doubt. He is close to the heart of our need. He provides STRENGTH and HOPE and gives us the courage we need to climb higher.
If we absorb the power of God’s WORD, we will recognize His presence in our lives. Isaiah 41:10 says “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” And, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31: 6
We must remain faithful! God WILL equip us to move along. In the timing of His will, He will reveal what waits to be discovered. We must NEVER forget; He WILL give strength to those who trust in Him.
Dear God, Thank you for being the Helper of our hearts. YOU are worthy of our love and faithfulness. We will find comfort in the promise of Your presence and allow the love of Jesus to open our eyes to Your strength, peace and HELP in time of need. Amen
