I just love these passages below in this Psalm. The Lord reminds us daily that our help comes from Him. We look to the Creator of the hills for help, not to the hills themselves. We need to thank Him today that He has allowed adversities in our lives that we may know that He alone is our Helper, our Deliver, our God. We need His help in everything. Remembering that apart from Christ, I can do nothing. So today, as you rise to prepare for whatever your day will bring meditate on the Words of the Lord in this Psalm.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills– From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow you stumble, the one who watches over you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:1-3
In Psalm 121, verse 3, God also reminds us that as we rested in the night, He worked. He did not sleep all night! He labored on our behalf through the night, and not just last night…every night! We do not have to run to Him for help this morning in order that He work on our behalf. He labors on our behalf because He loves us, because that is His character, because He says that He “works for those who wait for Him (Isaiah. 64:4).”
God loves to show His tireless power and wisdom and goodness by working for people who trust Him. Jesus Himself is the clearest revelation of this truth: ‘The Son of man also came not to be served but to serve (Mark 10:45).”
The Lord is so faithful. He is amazing! It is mighty to meditate on the fact that the Living God, the Creator of the universe, labors continually on my behalf, on your behalf. What an encouragement to rest in Him, to serve Him today and every day, knowing that it is He who is at work in us and not us at work in Him! He is our strength and He is our portion.
In whatever you have planned in your day, He is there. He is paving the way. He is already helping you today. May you enjoy the blessing of knowing that God is working for YOU today and always!
