I look up to the mountains - does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made the heavens and the earth!
- Psalm 121:1-2 (NLT)
We all have places of safety. There are places that we run to when the enemy approaches. For the Psalmist it would have been the mountains. Even to this day the rugged terrain of the Middle East protects those who need to be brought to justice. Our help and place of safety comes from the Lord. What is He able to do? He is the creator of the heavens and earth. A better question would be - what can He not do?
Father, I will stop trusting in natural resources and abilities. I will no longer place my future in the hands of my intellect and savvy. All of those will let me down. My trust is not in government or friends in high places. My trust is in You. You were the one who spoke and it was. You are all powerful and I will rest in Your hands.
