I will lift up mine eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
I know, we all do with anything and everything.
This life presents challenges which come and go, both internally and externally.
We need help with our jobs, family relationships, and extra commitments we join.
We need help with our minds to focus on what God wants us to do.
We need help to purpose our hearts, aligning them to God’s.
We need help to follow through with God’s purposes for our temporary lives.
We need help to filter through all of the world’s noise, attempting to constantly distract us.
We sometimes even need help to simply place one foot in front of the other.
The psalmist begins by deliberately choosing to lift his eyes to the hills.
Deciding to ask for God’s help is first, realizing we cannot perform our best apart from God.
We remind ourselves we cannot do things on our own.
We must ask for help.
We then declare our help comes from God.
Finally, we declare God’s power to help as we affirm Him Creator of all things.
Who better then the Creator of all things to help us with our small needs?
God created us.
God created our desires.
And He created us to need Him.
Only with a relationship with God will you become fulfilled in this life.
When the many needs press you for a solution, remember to raise your eyes to heaven.
God is always ready and willing to help you.
All you have to do is ask.
Ask Him to fill you up with Himself.
Then keep your peace, knowing the Creator of heaven and earth will give you everything you need.
Lift your eyes to God, asking Him to work through you.
And He will, every single time.
