“I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?”
Psalm 121:1 NIV
Something about being on the edge of the Rockies changed the meaning of these verses for me. As I climbed Seven Falls and walked through the Garden of the Gods, it changed my perspective.
A person running down a mountainside to come to my aid would be nice. An army of angels rushing to my rescue would be great. But that is not what I have available to me.
“My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2 NIV
My Hero, my Savior is God Almighty. He not only rushes to rescue me, He made the mountains, the ground, the air, the planet that carries me everyday.
This Psalm goes on to say that God doesn’t sleep, He’s never caught off guard by the things that come against me. He will keep me from harm.
As worry threatens and life bears down on me, finances overwhelm and something else breaks down or starts to leak, it is good to look to the mountains, with all their might and grandeur, and remember what kind of God I serve!
