Maker of Heaven and Earth | Psalm 121
Today's Passage: Psalm 121
Today's Passage: Psalm 121:1-2
I lift up my eyes to the mountainsówhere does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
The world is an uncertain place. Rogue nations continue to develop nuclear arms. Muslim extremists behead hostages and take over parts of the Middle East. Another virus breaks out and starts to show up around the world. Breaking news interrupts regularly scheduled programming to show viewers live footage of another natural disasterís aftermath.
Then it gets closer to home. Things change in our lives from day to day. Many have tests, treatments and surgeries that are on this week's schedule. Others have jobs that are on the bubble. Too many marriages are hanging together with one last thin thread of commitment. As you look to the mountainous challenges ahead, the words of the psalmist hit home, "Where does my help come from?"
The answer: The Lord! The Maker of heaven and earth! The unchanging God watches over you. He never sleeps, protecting you day and night. He leaves with you in the morning and comes home with you at night. He watches over you throughout the day. God is the only certainty. He will hold you with his unshakeable hand in your shaken world.
Father, help us hold on to you and never let go. Thank you for never letting go of us. In Jesus' name. Amen.
