Sometimes in life we look upon a situation with expectation hoping that something great is going to come out of it and then we watch as the door slowly closes on something we thought was the beginning of a breakthrough. It is disappointing isn’t it?
Psalms 121:1-2 says, “I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”
How many times do we look up to the high things in life to help us? We look to our jobs to provide for our financial needs, we look to our bosses to give us a raise, we look to that person to help us achieve something and the list goes on. I was recently reminded that sometimes we look in the wrong places for our help. Psalms 121 verse 2 tells us that our help comes from the Lord. Are you looking to God as your Helper? Are you looking to God for your breakthrough? For as long as our eyes are on the mountains, we will not see the hand of God in our lives. We need to turn our eyes and focus them on Jesus, our source and the Provider of everything we need. He is the One who opens the right doors for us and closes all the wrong ones. For as long as we are aware of where our help comes from, we will not despair at the situations around us.
May we be a people who echo the words of Psalm 20:7 in our lives which says, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God”. May we always look to God, the One who loves us, for everything we need in life. Let us shift our eyes from peering at the mountains, and fix them steadily on the One who will never let us fall.
Have a blessed week 🙂
